Actually I am new to brocade switch. I would like to connect ICX-6610 to opendaylight controller!
The openflow is enabled on the port, and then specify the IP address of the controller, but still the status TCP-connecting.
The switch can't connect to the controller.
Anyone please can help?

Have you verified L3 connectivity? Can you ping the open controller from the 6610?

It is also worth noting that by default you will use SSL to connect to OpenFlow controller when you configure with the command
openflow controller ip-address <ip_address>
To configure to use non SSL connection use:
openflow controller ip-address <ip_address> no-ssl
hope this helps

They can't reach eath other!
Actually I am not clear about the steps required to setup the connectivity with OF controller.
So please can you list the basic required steps to connect ICX-6610 to ODL.
Are we required to creat vlans, and how many vlans?
Your response is highly appreciated!

I have already done these two commands you have mentioned.
The problem I think in the basic configuration behind rather than openflow commands.
For example, I don't whether we need to setup vlans?
Are there any document show the steps of configuring ICX-6610 with opendaylight?

Please check the Brocade downloads manuals section for the version you are running for the following document:
FastIron Ethernet Switch Software Deifined Networking (SDN) Configuration Guide.
This will walk you through setting up the 6610.

You require IP connectivity between the ICX and the opendaylight controller either by way of the Management interface or a Ve interface configured on the ICX
Verify that the ICX can ping the opendaylight controller in the first instance then work through the manual as suggested

You mean by ve is through configuring vlans. Is is necessary to configure the controller into a vlan, and the other hosts to other vlan.
If possolbe could you also explain what do you mean by managment interfaces?
Sorry for these questions becaue this is the first time work on physical switch.

A Ve would be configured as follows:
vlan 10 by port
untagged ethe 1/1/1
router-interface ve 10
interface ve 10
ip address 126.96.36.199 255.255.255.0
As for management Interface this is dedicated out of band management interface on the device
interface management 1
ip address 188.8.131.52 255.255.255.0
So then either one of these interfaces must have connectivity to the opendaylight controller
