Paul Zimmerman:What tools do you recommend that I use to simulate a network?
The Open Source Mininet project offers a nice simulator for an OpenFlow network. See http://mininet.org/ for more details. There's also a mini-tutorial on setting up Mininet for use with OpenFlow at http://archive.openflow.org/wk/index.php/OpenFlow_Tutorial .
On Ubuntu-based systems, it's as easy as doing "sudo apt-get install mininet" to get it installed.
