OpenFlow Wireshark Dissector on Mac OS Mavericks

May 1, 2014 in Mac, ThirdParty, Tips

It’s been a while since I’ve wrote the little guides on getting the OpenFlow Wireshark dissector from the OpenFlow reference implementation running in Windows and in Mac OS Snow Leopard and Lion. Then latter one has since been updated with some notes about Mountain Lion and a later version of Wireshark (1.10.1), but even those are now out of date. Even though official OpenFlow support in the form of a new dissector is coming to Wireshark in 1.12 (expected later this year), I thought I’d do one last guide on how to build the old one for Mac OS Mavericks and the latest Wireshark release (1.10.7).

Composing Software Defined Networks, Pyretic, and POX

February 21, 2013 in POX, ThirdParty

Christopher Monsanto, Joshua Reich, Nate Foster, Jennifer Rexford and David Walker had their paper “Composing Software Defined Networks” accepted at NSDI. The goal is to allow the composition of independent functionality in SDN, and it builds on some of their other language-based work that started with Frenetic (which was built on NOX-Classic). This new paper introduces Pyretic, and their implementation is built on top of POX. So congratulations to them, and you can find the full text of the paper on the Frenetic site.

RouteFlow keeps flowing forward

Congratulations to the RouteFlow team, who announced another update to RouteFlow today! This follows the really big update from earlier this year, which was possibly the first multi-controller SDN application — it utilizes both NOX and POX.

Jaxon: Java Bindings for NOX

March 27, 2012 in NOX, ThirdParty

A couple of weeks ago, there was a post on nox-dev announcing the Jaxon project which had just had its source code go up on Bitbucket.  Jaxon uses Java Native Access to expose some of NOX Classic’s API to Java, while being almost just an ordinary NOX component (that is, it only requires a minor change to NOX itself, which I think we could actually fix…).  Of course, it comes with the prototypical sample application — an L2 learning switch equivalent to switch/pyswitch.
