I am trying to set up 'vdetelweb' for my vde switches.

I am running Ubuntu Karmic and installed vdetelweb via the Ubuntu

When i try to start it using this command:

  ~/vde_network/switches$ vdetelweb -t -w -f vdetelweb.conf vde0.mgmt

I get the following error message:

  ->  vdetelweb: Cannot connect to the VDE switch

The switch itself runs properly and i can connect to is using unixterm.

Below you can see how the switch vde0 is started in the 'interfaces'
file. I also attached the vdetelweb.conf .

In this scenario my kvm host has an ip address in the subnet.

Thanks in advance,
