Hi,

 

I am using wireshark 1.4.10

 

Wireshark dissector was not coming with OVS , I have followed following
steps to install this from link
http://www.openflow.org/wk/index.php/Fedora_Install :-

 

Install OpenFlow

Install from the Stanford Git repository: 

 

sudo yum install git automake pkgconfig libtool gcc make

 

 [Git install only] Download git repo with OpenFlow code and history. 

 

git clone git://openflow.org/openflow.git cd openflow ./boot.sh Or, to
install from tarball (not recommended for developers - harder to pull
new updates and contribute code): 

 

wget http://openflow.org/downloads/openflow-1.0.0.tar.gz

tar xzf openflow-1.0.0.tar.gz

cd openflow-1.0.0

Build OpenFlow user-space switch: 

 

./configure

make

sudo make install

Install Wireshark Dissector

The OpenFlow Wireshark Dissector is included in the standard OpenFlow
distribution. It requires one additional library, plus the Wireshark
package. 

 

Install Wireshark and glib: 

 

yum groupinstall "X Window System"

sudo yum install wireshark wireshark-gnome glib2-devel Make and install:


 

cd utilities/wireshark_dissectors/openflow

make

sudo make install

 

Regards,

Sheili

As far as I know OVS doesn't include a wireshark dissector.  Maybe you
should report your problem to whoever supplied the wireshark dissector?


To save you some time, my guess is that you got the wireshark dissector
from the stanford reference openflow switch.  In general, questions
about it should go to openflow-discuss at lists.stanford.edu (and not this
list), but this particular question as come up recently, which you can
find the answer for here:

Hope this helps,
