17<p>In this lab we will connect to our datapath element and perform the necessary steps to ensure that it is running Open vSwitch and can connect to our controller.</p>
18<h1 id="goals">Goals</h1>
20<li>Connect to Datapath Element</li>
21<li>Start Open vSwitch</li>
22<li>Connect to Controller</li>

26<li>Commands preceded with &quot;$&quot; imply that you should execute the command as a general user - not as root.</li>
27<li>Commands preceded with &quot;#&quot; imply that you should be working as root.</li>
28<li>Commands with more specific command lines (e.g. &quot;RTR-GW&gt;&quot; or &quot;mysql&gt;&quot;) imply that you are executing commands on remote equipment, or within another program.</li>

31<h2 id="installing-telnet">Installing telnet</h2>
32<p>To connect to the datapath element from your controller you will need to install telnet on your VM. Alternatively you can telnet directly from your laptop</p>
33<pre><code>$ sudo apt-get install telnet</code></pre>
34<h2 id="telnet-to-your-datapath-element">Telnet to your datapath element</h2>
35<pre><code>$ telnet
37Connected to
38Escape character is &#39;^]&#39;.
39 === IMPORTANT ============================
40  Use &#39;passwd&#39; to set your login password
41  this will disable telnet and enable SSH

191<p>You can see that in this case OVS is trying and failing to contact the OpenFlow controller. We will fix this in a later lab.</p>
