A networking software library
This is a python3 port of POX, a networking software platform written in Python. POX3 is forked from POX (Version eel 0.5.0) as its goal it to provide a package based library for constructing controllers.
History and Details
POX started life as an OpenFlow controller, but can now also function as an OpenFlow switch, and can be useful for writing networking software in general.
POX3 officially requires Python 3.8 (though much of it will work fine fine with Python 3.7 or even 3.6), and should run under Linux, Mac OS, and Windows.
POX3 currently communicates with OpenFlow 1.0 switches and includes special support for the Open vSwitch/Nicira extensions.
pip3 install pox3
The following example runs with debug logging, it acts like a simple hub
from pox3.boot import boot boot(["log.level", "--DEBUG", "forwarding.hub"])
To learn further I would recommend getting the
act_like_switch method to work
samples/of_tutorial.py, you will need to read the pox3 source code a bit
particularly the files in
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
