Thanks for the reply Flavio.

The IP address for the controller is a typo. The connection between the
openvswitch and OpenDaylight is working perfectly fine.

I did not configure the other side to work on GRE port. I missed that.

I have tried doing this without GRE port too. I could not establish the
connection at that point too.

Thanks,
Shruti
