NAME

libvdeplug_vde - vdeplug module for vde_switch based networks

SYNOPSIS

libvdeplug_vde.so

DESCRIPTION

This is the standard vdeplug module for vde_switch based networks. This module of libvdeplug4 can be used in any program supporting vde like vde_plug, kvm, qemu, user-mode-linux and virtualbox. The vde_plug_url syntax of the module is the following:

vde://path_of_the_switch[[port#_or_portgroup]]

This is the default module for libvdeplug, any string not containing '://' (like a path) is processes by libvdeplug_vde. (e.g. /tmp/vde.ctl is equivalent to vde:///tmp/vde.ctl).

EXAMPLES

vde:///tmp/myswitch
This vde_plug_url refers to the vde_switch identified by the directory /tmp/vde_switch. Please note that there are three slashes '///' as 'vde://' is the prefix and the third slash is the first character of the absolute path.
vde://thisswitch[3]
this means the port #3 of the switch whose identifier is thisswitch in the current directory
vde:///var/run/vde.ctl[privatelan]
this is used to create a connetion to the pertgroup privatelan of the switch /var/run/vde.ctl.
