Zodiac FX - What's the difference between a "Native" and "OpenFlow" port?

By default, two VLANs are configured on the Zodiac FX:

  • "OpenFlow", with ID 100
  • "Native", with ID 200

"OpenFlow" Port: intended for general network traffic. Connect these ports to network hosts.

"Native" Port: intended for management traffic. Connect this port to the OpenFlow controller.

By default, ports 1-3 are set as OpenFlow ports. Port 4 is set to Native.
