Hi , I am planning to deploy SFC using [this guide] ( ).

I have everything on single machine. Everything worked fine ,SFF,SF,Rendered Service path were created successfully. In the final step I check using command
"python3.4 --remote-sff-ip <my _host_ip=""> --remote-sff-port 4789 --sfp-id 1 --sfp-index 255" ,

I get sending packet but then error "No response from <host_ip 4789="">". Btw when I check this port 4789, I see it is open and responding.

Can anyone help me out here? What is going wrong here.?

Regards, Saurav

HI, Do you see flows getting installed after SFP is created? Even I am stuck at same point. If you are running on NSH enabled OVS, give remotes-sff-port as 6633. THis might work only if you have flows installed

Yes, I can see flows are added on ovs. Every thing worked fine but when I tried sending packets, I get no response from <ip:port>. Even though rules are added but they are not getting hit. Somewhere I think packet is getting dropped.

Be carreful with the sfp-id it is changed every time you create a new rsp. In addition, in the SFC101 demo, you are refferd, there is no need of OVS. In the SFC102 demo you need OVS-NSH.

The demo you're using has been updated with 2 newer versions. The lastest version, sfc103 should be much easier to use now.

You can get the latest demo by git clone'ing the SFC code and looking here:


This demo uses vagrant which has a prepared VM with everything you need, so you dont have to worry about installing NSH, etc.

Here are some steps for cloning and building the SFC code.

Hi, have you tried the sfc103 tutorial? I found some part of it was outdated. For example, the link to download maven had a 404. I fixed each VM but I cannot get the HTTP request or ping through using 192.168.2.X ip.

Any example available for people installing the module using karaf (feature:install ...) ?
