I am not able to get ovsdbmonitor working.I am getting authorization
failure wen connecting to localhost.

ovsdb-server is also running:
root at precise:~# ps -aef | grep ovsdb-serv
root       887   886  0 12:15 ?        00:00:00 ovsdb-server
/etc/openvswitch/conf.db -vANY:CONSOLE:EMER -vANY:SYSLOG:ERR
-vANY:FILE:INFO --remote=punix:/var/run/openvswitch/db.sock
--remote=db:Open_vSwitch,manager_options --private-key=db:SSL,private_key
--certificate=db:SSL,certificate --bootstrap-ca-cert=db:SSL,ca_cert
--no-chdir --log-file=/var/log/openvswitch/ovsdb-server.log
--pidfile=/var/run/openvswitch/ovsdb-server.pid --detach --monitor

I can connect to ovsdb using ovsdb-client as well:
root at precise:~# ovsdb-client list-dbs

But, when I try to connect to the same db via ovsdbmonitor, I am seeing
authorization error:
SSH Password: openflow # My only user on the system is openflow/openflow
Connect Target: unix:/var/run/openvswitch/db.sock

Even the command used in the ovsdbmonitor program is returning success when
used from shell:
root at precise:~# /usr/bin/ovsdb-client transact
unix:/var/run/openvswitch/db.sock '["Open_vSwitch",
{"op":"select","table":"Controller", "where":[]}]'

In the Log window see the authorization failure errors continuously:

Authentication failure for
Connection attempt to timed out
Authentication failure for

Can you help me in getting ovsdbmonitor working?
