NOX 1.2 Oflib
-------------

This is an OpenFlow 1.2 [1] compatible version of the NOX controller.
The code is based on Nicira's NOX Zaku controller [2], with
OpenFlow proecessing being replaced with Oflib from the OpenFlow 1.2 Software
Switch [3]. The controller only supports C++ applications (no Python).

Pre-requisites
---------------
NOX dependencies are listed in this page  
https://github.com/noxrepo/nox-classic/wiki/Dependencies

The code was compiled and tested under an Ubuntu 11.10. 
To compile it in a later version you should downgrade almost every dependency, so
we recommend, while the code isn't updated, to use an older system version.

Getting Started
---------------

To build, run the following commands in the of11softswitch directory:

    ./boot.sh
    mkdir build
    ../configure
    make


To start the controller, run the following commands:

    cd build/src
    ./nox-core -i ptcp:<port> [applications]

This will start the controller, listening on the given port for switch
connetions. For a complete list of options, use the --help argument.
