openflow & openvswitch in openwrt

By | 2015年11月30日

I’ve got a NetGear R6300 V2 in hand.

As you already know, installing openvswitch in openwrt is very simple now. But for openflow, you need rebuild the openwrt image.

Install openvswitch

In any openwrt system you can just do:

To build the openflow supported openwrt, you need:

Build openwrt

OS: Ubuntu 14.04
Openwrt source:

Prepare your build env:

Select the OpenFlow package under Network and build the image.

    Hi, thanks for the post. I have a TP Link 1043ND v3. I have download the proper version of OpenWrt and replace the default fireware of the AP. Then ssh to the AP and install the OVS (opkg update && opkg install openvswitch). Do I still need to install OpenFlow on the AP or after the OVS is installed, it includes/includes openflow by itself? Thanks, Zhongliang

        Thanks for the reply, do you know are there any differences between using OVS on OpenWrt and install native OpenFlow on OpenWrt?
