Once you have set up yanc using this link, we now need to run yanc filesystem, yanc-of-adapter and mininet.
Go to yanc folder and run the following command:
$ ./yanc -f /net
This will mount the yanc filesystem under /net directory.
Open new terminal. Go to <path-to-yanc>/apps/of-adapter and run following command:
$ ./yanc-of-adapter /net unix:path=/var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket -vvv
This will start yanc-of-adapter at port 6633 on the localhost. It will use unix:path=/var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket as the D-Bus for IPC (read about D-Bus here).
Now we will create a simple topology using mininet. Open a new terminal and go to <path-to-mininet>/bin to find mininet executable called mn. Run following command:
# mn –controller=remote,ip=127.0.0.1,port=6633
Note: You must have root privileges to run above command.
Mininet is now running with the topology depicted in the below figure:
Great! You just completed the 2nd tutorial of the series. Will be back with more awesome stuff shortly. Stay tuned.
