Please find the steps to achieve a standard network configuration with OpenStack:

  1. Create a router and set a gateway to an external network
  2. Create a network/subnet
  3. Add a router interface to the network created in step 2.
  4. Launch an instance and select the network you created in step 2.
  5. Allocate a floating IP for the external network used in step 1.
  6. Associate the floating IP to the instance

As a result, you should be able** to ping/ssh/... the instance from the external network.

**If this doesn't work, make sure your network interfaces are correctly set (ifconfig/route) by logging into the VM through the console in Horizon.
