DESCRIPTION

ovn-controller-vtep is the local controller daemon in OVN, the Open Virtual Network, for VTEP enabled physical switches It connects up to the OVN Southbound database (see ovn-sb(5)) over the OVSDB protocol, and down to the VTEP database (see vtep(5)) over the OVSDB protocol

ssl:ip:port
The specified SSL port on the host at the given ip, which must be expressed as an IP address (not a DNS name) in IPv4 or IPv6 address format If ip is an IPv6 address, then wrap ip with square brackets, eg: ssl:[::1]:6640 The --private-key, --certificate and either of --ca-cert or --bootstrap-ca-cert options are mandatory when this form is used
tcp:ip:port
Connect to the given TCP port on ip, where ip can be IPv4 or IPv6 address If ip is an IPv6 address, then wrap ip with square brackets, eg: tcp:[::1]:6640
unix:file
On POSIX, connect to the Unix domain server socket named file
On Windows, connect to a localhost TCP port whose value is written in file
