Above is the topology of my network. I configured the Laptop A with Bridge0
and add two physical interfaces to it. On Laptop B it added two interfaces
to separate bridges. Interface at Bridge1 should not ping the interfaces at
Bridge0 but it is pinging. My configuration is as follows
After installing the open vswitch

 ovsdb-tool create /usr/local/etc/ovs-vswitchd.conf.db

 ovsdb-server /usr/local/etc/ovs-vswitchd.conf.db
--remote=db:Open_vSwitch,managers --private-key=db:SSL,private_key
--certificate=db:SSL,certificate --bootstrap-ca-cert=db:SSL,ca_cert --detach

 ovs-vsctl --no-wait init

 ovs-vswitchd unix:/usr/local/var/run/openvswitch/db.sock --detach

ovs-vsctl add-br bridge0

ovs-vsctl add-port bridge0 eth1

similarly i added bridges and ports to bridges.
I don't use virtual machines

I think there is something missing in configuration. Please help me
