If you have all the pieces installed, you can just configure it as you would any OpenFlow controller in OVS:

	ovs-vsctl <bridge> ssl:<flowvisor_ip>

or, if it's unencrypted:

	ovs-vsctl <bridge> tcp:<flowvisor_ip>

The section "OpenFlow Controller Connectivity" in the ovs-vsctl man page should have all the information you need.
