Add a flow to OVSK for communication

I have created a torus topology in mininet by enabling sflow and connecting to POX controller for topology discovery. Below is the command.

sudo mn --custom=sflow-rt/extras/ --link tc,bw=10 --topo torus,3,3 --controller remote --switch ovsk,stp=1 --mac

My topology discovery program works well, but I don't see any response when I try to ping all the hosts.

mininet> h1x1 ping h1x2
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
From icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable
From icmp_seq=2 Destination Host Unreachable
From icmp_seq=3 Destination Host Unreachable
From icmp_seq=4 Destination Host Unreachable
From icmp_seq=5 Destination Host Unreachable
From icmp_seq=6 Destination Host Unreachable
Therefore, I have added arp and icmp rules to the ovsk switch. Even after adding, ping does not work.
sudo ovs-ofctl add-flow s1x1 priority=65535,arp,in_port=1,vlan_tci=0x0000,dl_src=00:00:00:00:00:01,dl_dst=00:00:00:00:00:02,arp_spa=,arp_tpa=,arp_op=2 actions=output:1
sudo ovs-ofctl add-flow s1x2 priority=65535,arp,in_port=1,vlan_tci=0x0000,dl_src=00:00:00:00:00:02,dl_dst=00:00:00:00:00:01,arp_spa=,arp_tpa=,arp_op=2,actions=output:1
sudo ovs-ofctl add-flow s1x1 priority=65535,icmp,in_port=1,vlan_tci=0x0000,dl_src=00:00:00:00:00:01,dl_dst=00:00:00:00:00:02,nw_src=,nw_dst=,nw_tos=0,icmp_type=8,icmp_code=0,actions=output:1
sudo ovs-ofctl add-flow s1x2 priority=65535,icmp,in_port=1,vlan_tci=0x0000,dl_src=00:00:00:00:00:02,dl_dst=00:00:00:00:00:01,nw_src=,nw_dst=,nw_tos=0,icmp_type=8,icmp_code=0,actions=output:1

I am not sure what else need to be added. I have tried running POX with l2_learning as well but the python program crashes.

Can someone please help me with this problem? Thanks in advance.
