Hi Ben,
Do I also need to enable in-band stuff at the datapath ports as well?   I just added the datapath port as explained in INSTALL.Linux and then setted up the controller as you explained in last mail.  I am not observing any packet exchange in the tcpdump output of datapath ports.   My set up is =>  switch A, B and C connected in a linear way and the controller is connected to switch B. So in this setup, I am interested that the controller traffic of the switch A and C should go via datapath ports connected to switch B.

In-band control is enabled by default when you configure a controller.
You can use "ovs-vsctl set-controller <bridge> <controller>" to
configure a controller.
