My switch is a Hp ProCurve 1810G-24.

I have everything setup and running with mininet, but now i want to use my real switch, can you help me? Or link me a tutorial on how to do it.

I have not used HP 1810 series, but I think it supports Openflow. See product guide for configuring that.

If you have mininet working with ODL, then I assume you have done things correctly on the controller side of things.

On first glance, I don't see the 1810 switch supporting openflow over here

If you do have an openflow enabled switch from HP, there is some test code in the ODL integration repo that has some examples of openflow commands on a provision (HP openflow enabled) switch. Look for the function baseopenflowconfig on how to do the basic openflow config.

Thanks for both of your answers.

It seems that my switch can't support Openflow, is there any alternative or should i assume if it can't support Openflow it won't support the other protocols?

See if it supports netconf or any other protocols?

It doesn't, but i got another device that is a "cisco catalyst 3560", and since i am a bit new to this, can you tell me how to connect to opendaylight? It is already installed and i am using minicom to comunicate with it. Thanks in advance and sorry for the bother.

Honestly.. have no idea about 'cisco catalyst 3560'.. better you ask Google Uncle.. :) or ask a separate question, some expert may give you hints.

same answer here. find the config guide for that cat 3560 and see what it says about openflow. There are plenty of Cisco folks in the ODL community, so a new question here might find one of those people,
