Thanks for your quick reply.

So, is it required to "set-manager"? I did not understand the need for the
command.

Also, when I try to set the remote IP using

ovsdb-server --remote=ptcp:6640:10.107.48.192


I get the following:
2016-04-23T16:05:29Z|00001|socket_util|ERR|6640:10.107.48.192: bind: Cannot
assign requested address
2016-04-23T16:05:29Z|00002|ovsdb_jsonrpc_server|ERR|ptcp:6640:10.107.48.192:
listen failed: Cannot assign requested address
2016-04-23T16:05:29Z|00003|ovsdb_server|INFO|ovsdb-server (Open vSwitch)
2.3.90

We basically want a secured connection between ovsdb-client and server.
Should we use ssl? If so, how exactly do we set up the connection, generate
the keys and certificates?

Thanks again,
Ojas
