Your first RouteFlow network

These first steps are meant for people willing to test RouteFlow and learn the basics about the architecture.

You have two options to start using RouteFlow:

The diagram below illustrates what we're running in this test: one switch (switch1), connecting two hosts (b1 and b2).
This switch is being controlled by RouteFlow, and a virtual machine (rfvm1) is running Linux and doing the forwarding intelligence tasks for switch1.

In order to run this scenario, follow the instructions in the README (this is rftest1).

If you wish to explore what's going on, take a look at the script powering this demonstration.
