I have installed a 3-homed private cloud using open stack newton. I am able to access the horizon dashboard from the three cloud hosts but not from other machines on the same LAN/VLAN as my controller (ie Could you please help me with resolving this networking issue

Can the PCs access the controller in other ways - ping, ssh, other web pages? Could there be a firewall on the controller that blocks HTTP and HTTPS ports? What happens when you try to access the dashboard? Did you try a tool like telnet or nc to access Horizon's URL?

All PCs ssh, ping each other as well as other machines. Only the dashboaord (horizon) of c is not accesible from other PCs. These cloud pcs are on an internal VLAN inside private LAN. VLANs access the web server, mail server hosted for the overall network and internet as well. VLANs ping each other gravatar ( 2017-03-24 03:34:51 -0600 )edit

*c is Controller.....I can ssh into the controller but not able to access the web dashboard of controller.....If i type IP with/ without port no it gives bad request, else, by name (ie.controller/dashboard/auth/login) it gives Apache server under maintenance message gravatar ( 2017-03-24 04:05:25 -0600 )edit

So you can access the web server on c. I would check the apache and horizon log files. Their location depends on the operating system and how you installed OpenStack, e.g. /var/log/httpd and /var/log/horizon.
