Hi Karthik, your ovs runs OF1.0 protocol version and by -O OpenFlow13 you specified protocol version of client. These versions must be equal. You can run ovs in OF1.3 mode or use -O OpenFlow10 (default - so you can skip) by the ovs-ofctl.

Older versions of mininet start ovs in OF1.0 mode by default. I believe mininet-2.2.0 requires protocol version to be specified.

HI ,Its resolved by running ovs in OF1.3 mode ,command is sudo ovs-vsctl set bridge s1 protocols=OpenFlow13 . Thanks @michal.rehak
