If you want to connect two machines by a point-to-point line:
start the first naming a 'NULL' port 
/tmp/vdep2p[]
start the second as the first were the switch:
/tmp/vdep2p

that's all.
The doc about female sockets is in my todo file ;-)

The switch is (still) not able to use a UDP connection, the libvdeplug library
does.
For now if you want to connect a UDP tunnel to a vde switch you need a
cable, for example a wirefilter (plugged in the switch on one side and
using the UDP syntax for the other end).

Work is always in progess....
