We are a group of graduate students from UCSD, and we are working on a
class project using WANProxy. Our goal is to be able to start and control
WANProxy from an openflow based controller written in python. We already
have the openflow controller in python, and we would like to let it "talk"
to WANProxy. So instead of directly type "wanproxy -c client.conf" in the
terminal, we hope to type in a command in the openflow controller, and then
let it start/control the WANProxy. We'd appreciate it very much if you
could give us some guideline on how to integrate WANProxy with openflow
controller, specifically which parts of the code in WANProxy are the
interface/API that we should study? And what is the best tool to wrap
WANProxy into python?

Thank you for your help and suggestions.
