Share Pi 3B as WiFi with OVS bridge not linux bridge

Thu Mar 22, 2018 6:13 am

Am stuck for three days for finding the solution but no result :?: :!: :!: :!: .

Going by following documentation on how to turn raspberry pi into access point.

https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentati ... s-point.md
https://thepi.io/how-to-use-your-raspbe ... ess-point/
https://github.com/SurferTim/documentat ... s-point.md

I was able to turn Raspberry pi successfully to share internet connection with my other devices without any hitches. However am running a project which involve openvswitch and sdn controller.
using bridge to access internet connection, in the above url valid documentations was written based on linux bridge stated below;

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install hostapd bridge-utils  

Code: Select all

sudo brctl addbr br0

Code: Select all

sudo brctl addif br0 eth0
sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces

Code: Select all

auto br0
iface br0 inet manual
bridge_ports eth0 wlan0

Code: Select all

interface=wlan0
bridge=br0
#driver=nl80211
ssid=NameOfNetwork
hw_mode=g
*************
however i have already

Code: Select all

ovs-vsctl add br br0

Code: Select all

ovs-vsctl add-port br0 eth0
running

Code: Select all

ovs-vsctl show
I learnt that br0 and eth0 conflicting with ovs bridge and linux bridge.

How can i transform the above linux bridging descrisptions into ovs bridge and able to access internet by host devices?

Many thanks in advance
