Hi all,
I have some doubts to resolve about switch local port.
Firstly, in the ovs-openflowd manpage I can read: "...The Open‐Flow
local port is a virtual network port that ovs-openflowd bridges to the
physical switch ports...". I'm searching through the sources but I
can't find out where this bridging operation is realised. Can you
kindly show it to me? I'm working on the 1.1.0pre2 code version.
Moreover, I don't understand which exactly is the role played by this
virtual device and in which cases it is used. Can you explain me it?

Thanks.
