I don't see parameter to specify IP/Port of openflow controller for
vswitchd connect in, How vswitchd find controller? auto discovery?

Dec 09 21:32:22|00002|reconnect|WARN|ofproto/list: connection attempt
failed (Address family not supported by protocol)
Dec 09 21:32:22|00003|reconnect|INFO|ofproto/list: waiting 1 seconds
where it tries to connect to?
from openflow spec 1.0, I found:
>>Future versions of the protocol specification will describe a dynamic
>>discovery protocol in which the IP address and port for communicating
>>the controller is determined at runtime.
does it mean current openflow switch could only connect to
specified address? if so, what's vswitchd way?
