Join David Bombal for an in-depth discussion in this video Mininet reversed versus single topology, part of Practical Software-Defined Networking: 3 Learning Mininet.
- [Instructor] So that's a single switch. We can also do a reversed pingall. Previously, host 1 was connected on port 1. When I click Reload, what you'll notice now is host 1 is now connected on port 4, and host 4 is connected on port 1. So the port numbers have been reversed. Host 2 is on 3. Host 3 is on 2. If we go back to single, so single topology, you'll notice host 1 is in port 1 again, host 2 is in port 2, host 3 is on 3, and 4 is on 4.
So this is a lot simpler and easier to manage than random MAC addresses. You can also see that by typing the command, host 1 ifconfig, notice host 1's IP address and MAC address, much simpler.
Note: This course uses GNS3 for all demonstrations.
