I want to know, How to connect two veths(ports) of two different P4 switch?I want to send data process by one P4 switch to another P4 switch which implements different P4 programs. As of now, we can send packets from veth1(port1) and  sniff on veth6(port3) by scapy (from copy_to_cpu example).How to connect same port 3 of veth6 of 1st P4 switch to some incoming port of 2nd P4 switch?
Moreover, as I cannot run two instances (programs)on same P4 switch. Do I need to make another copy or folder of that switch (/targets/simple_switch)? and how to connect to other?Please help
