Join David Bombal for an in-depth discussion in this video Mininet host commands, part of Practical Software-Defined Networking: 3 Learning Mininet.
- [Instructor] Now, the hosts in this topology…are essentially full-blown Linux PCs.…Anything that's supported by Linux…can be run on those hosts.…So, back in Mininet,…let's use commands like h1 ifconfig.…That's just a Linux command.…So, scrolling up,…so h1 ifconfig, notice IP address,…notice MAC address.…That's the host over here.…
By the same token, h2 ifconfig.…IP address, MAC address of host two.…I could use commands like h1 ping but only send one ping…to h2 or reverse that.…Similar to what you would do on a Linux host.…So, h2 ping h1…or how about h1 arp to look at the arp table?…Notice h1 arp has got an entry…for host two with this MAC address.…
Just like in any Linux host, h1 route.…We can see routing information.…No default gateway's been configured at the moment.…So, h1 ping one h2, ping succeeds…but Mininet also supports…you shutting down interfaces in the topology,…so link switch one h1 down,…now if we try and ping,…the network is unreachable.…
Bring the link up,…ping succeeds.…Now, other controllers such as the HP van SDN controller…
