Although this is very useful reference information, to get started quickly with your Pronto switch connect to it using a console cable and reboot it. In the boot menu select the 'OpenFlow' option to boot the Indigo software. After that it will ask you if you want to configure it manually, type "no" and let it guide you through the configuration. Set an IP for the switch, the controller and other options and you should be ready to go.

Good luck!
