    61 You will need to follow [wiki:NikySandbox/GPO_PGOF#ConfigurePGHosts these instructions] in all your hosts in order to configure the network interface that is directly connected to the OpenFlow switch. It's important to do this step '''BEFORE''' creating the OpenFlow sliver, since the interfaces need to be up before being able to reserve the OpenFlow resources.

    72 The OpenFlow slivers do not expire, so there is no need to renew this sliver. However it is important to delete your OpenFlow sliver BEFORE your slice expires, since you won't be able to delete after that. If your slice expires and you haven't deleted your OpenFlow sliver, please send an email to gpo-infra@geni.net and ask for your sliver to be deleted. Use this [wiki:NikySandbox/GPO_PGOF#OFdeleteemailtemplate email template].

    7474You will need to modify the [attachment:of.rspec of.rspec file] in two ways :
     
    7676   b. Point the traffic to your own controller. In the example rspec, the OpenFlow resources point to a controller running at a host in the GPO lab (nineveh.gpolab.bbn.com) listening on port 1716 for connections. You can use any host you want for the controller as long as it is reachable through the internet.  Performance-wise you might want to use one of your ProtoGENI hosts (make sure you specify the control interface of the host, e.g. pc4.pgeni.gpolab.bbn.com) as your OpenFlow controller. If you have never used OpenFlow before, let us know and we can help you get started.

    78 After you reserve your OpenFlow resources, send an email to gpo-infra@geni.net so that we can opt-in your traffic. Use this [wiki:NikySandbox/GPO_PGOF#OFOpt-inemailtemplate email template]. After you get an email back that your OpenFlow setup is ready you can start your experiment.
