I have been meaning to connect OvS to ODL using TLS. I have installed the openflowplugin-all in ODL but it hasnt opened port 6633 for OF to connect to it. What other features do I need along with this for it to work?

Hi, I am new to ODL but let me try to give a pointer.Don't you think you need to explicitly tell ovs about controller using ovs-vsctl set-controller <ovsbridge-name> tcp:<ip of="" controller="">:6633

Yes, but that is on the OvS side, correct? I do have that on my OvS VM. But logically, ODL should be listening on that port for OF on OvS side to make the connection. When I look at the open ports on ODL, I have these up: Discovered open port 8080/tcp on Discovered open port 22/tcp on Discovered open port 8181/tcp on Discovered open port 1099/tcp on Discovered open port 8443/tcp on Doesnt have 6633. So even if the client tries to connect, ODL is not listening.

Didn't help. I am thinking I am missing something on the ODL side for it to open port 6633. I read in one of the popular questions that VTN Manager opened port 6633. It doesnt seem to open that port for me.

Few questions: 1. Is any other process is using 6633? 2. Did you modify and config, which may by mistaken changed OF port? 3. Any error in karaf.log while starting?
