Per class 4 instructions, we should use this command to launch the controller:

                           ovs-controller ptcp: &


But when I try it, I get an error message:

[email protected]:~# ovs-controller ptcp: &

[1] 4894

[email protected]:~# No command 'ovs-controller' found, did you mean:

 Command 'ovn-controller' from package 'ovn-host' (universe)

ovs-controller: command not found

    The only OVS command similar to this I found is "ovs-testcontroller" it also has an option ptcp

  • Yes, depending on the distro used, the
    is named now either
    - ovs-testcontroller
    - testcontroller
    - openvswitch-testcontroller

    You picked the correct alternative.
