[ovs-discuss] Configuring in-band control

I thought in-band was default in mininet topologies?

Anyway, sometimes OvS processes control messages using ingress tables
<http://openvswitch.org/pipermail/discuss/2015-December/019580.html> in
"in-band" environments, and it can be configured to always have this
<http://openvswitch.org/pipermail/discuss/2015-December/019582.html>. I
wanted to know how to make this configuration.

Thanks for your help.
