[Open vSwitch] Simply test ovs-ofctl command on GNS3 simulation network


This article is to test ovs-ofctl command on GNS3 simulation network. PC1 and PC2 are  virtual machine on Qemu. U_OVS is emulated with Open vSwitch and an OpenFlow Controller is also on it. Please see the following picture:

1. For how to build the following GNS3 environment, please refer to the URL:

2. Run > sudo ovs-ofctl show br0

p.s:
the script of PC1 configuration
Login is tc without password set.
Assign IP address 192.168.1.1/24 to eth0 and make it persistent after next reboot of Microcore
sudo hostname PC1
sudo ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0
echo "hostname PC1" >> /opt/bootlocal.sh
echo "ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0" >> /opt/bootlocal.sh
/usr/bin/filetool.sh -b
