Hi, I have a mininet setup integrated with my ODL(Helium version). I have created 2 hosts and a switch from mininet. I have tried some of the REST API to hit ODL for creating clows with actions like flood. I am able to see the flow entry been made in mininet "sudo ovs-ofctl dump-flows s1" . But my "h1 ping h2" is not working. Can u suggest me a basic API for adding a flow to make h1 ping h2?// Thanks in advance.

then the flood flow at s1 is sufficient to provide the communication.
