Hi,

Why do we need ptcp: and tcp:?
ptcp: the bridge is listening, tcp: the bridge is trying to connect. why isn't one of them enough?


Thanks

set−controller bridge target... 
 Sets the configured controller target or targets. Each target may use any of the following forms: 
 ssl:ip[:port] 
 The specified SSL port (default: 6633) on the host at the given ip, which must be expressed as an IP address (not a DNS name). The −−private−key, −−certificate, and −−ca−cert options are mandatory when this form is used. 
 tcp:ip[:port] 
 The specified TCP port (default: 6633) on the host at the given ip, which must be expressed as an IP address (not a DNS name). 
 unix:file 
 The Unix domain server socket named file. 
 pssl:[port][:ip] 
 Listens for OpenFlow SSL connections on port (default: 6633). The −−private−key, −−certificate, and −−ca−cert options are mandatory when this form is used. By default, connections are not bound to a particular local IP address, but ip may be specified to listen only for connections to the given ip. 
 ptcp:[port][:ip] 
 Listens for OpenFlow TCP connections on port (default: 6633). By default, connections are not bound to a particular local IP address, but ip may be specified to listen only for connections to the given ip.
