Reverse TCP Connection in Northbound Netconf Server

Hey guys,

I have a question regarding the Northbound Netconf Server in ODL. I wanted to reverse the connection on the TCP layer, so that the server actually makes a connection request (instead of listening for an incoming connection). For testing purposes I already extended the ncclient (not published yet) for this functionality. To be honest I'm a bit overwhelmed by the sheer amount of features and packages ODL has.

Can someone give me any pointers, where such an implementation could be integrated? Or how I could start? I already checked and think that netconf-ssh would be my first guess.

I'm aware that the SSH-Session is established using Mina-SSHD. So is it enough, if I simply add the functionality in the library?

Thanks in advance for every information.

There is some support for this scenario described in but it is not yet available in OpenDaylight.

If you want to implement the draft in OpenDaylight, I strongly suggest attending the kernel weekly meeting of OpenDaylight to discuss this matter.

Hope this helps, Alexis

Thanks for your answer Alexis. Yeah, I wanted to implement this particular draft in ODL. I've already implemented it now, but still need to do a lot of testing. After it's finished, I'll share my solution for anyone who is interested. Thanks for your help Alexis.
