    2427These are instructions to install the layer1transport service.  These instructions were created and tested using an Ubuntu 10.04 system.

     47=== 4. (optional) Update properties file ===
    4848If you need to change the <of_port> and/or the <rest_port> that the Floodlight instance binds to, then the modify following lines in `/home/openflow/floodlight/config/layer1transport.properties`:

    54 === 6. (optional) Update logback config ===
     54=== 5. (optional) Update logback config ===
    5555There are three reference logback configurations distributed with this software:
    5656 * `/home/openflow/floodlight/conf/logback_file.xml`: logs floodlight messages to `/var/log/floodlight.log`
     
    6060The layer1transport service uses the file `/home/openflow/floodlight/conf/logback.xml`, which by default is a symlink that points to `logback_file.xml`.  If you want to change which configuration you use, or if you want to use an alternate configuration, make modifications now.

    62 === 7. Create flows files ===
     62=== 6. Create flows files ===
    6363You will need to create files that define that flows that should be managed by the SFP module in floodlight.  The flows files '''must''' have a `.json` file extension in order to work with this service.  The API and the data format are defined in [http://docs.projectfloodlight.org/display/floodlightcontroller/Static+Flow+Pusher+API+%28New%29 the SFP documentation].  Defining the proper flows requires an understanding of your switch platforms, and where administrative flows are needed within the network.  Please coordinate with us if you would like help defining these, or if you would like us to sanity check.  One you have defined the flows in a set of files, place the files under `/home/openflow/floodlight/flows.d/`.  Two files are provided as a reference.

     97=== 10. Poke holes in firewalls as needed ===
    9898If you need to poke a hole in the firewall (either in the network or on the controller host itself) for the switch to reach <of_port> on the controller, do this now.

     100=== 11. Point switch instances at new controller ===
    101101For each OF instance that needs to have flows installed, point the instance at administrative Floodlight instance that you stood up.  How this gets done will depend on the switch platform.  You will point the switch at the <of_port>.
