Can we ssh from openstack instance to host?? If possible how to do that ? We tried from instance to ssh into host like giving: ssh user@hostip, but its not sshing and throwing error as no route to host. Kindly help us in solving this issue and correct way to ssh from openstack VM to its host.

Thanks in advance!!

you need to add a route from instance to host. and you need to make the host as the gateway for the instance

You need to change it in your host machine network settings. What OS are you using as your base OS which is running VM?

Is your instance configured with a safety group that allows outgoing SSH-connections?

@student: Im using ubuntu 16.04 as base OS in VM and my host OS is ubuntu14.04. What extra changes should I do in my host machine network settings? Please explain

you can ping to an external host which connected to it's internal same network or from the floating network which the instance connected.

@surabhi so the ping gets ICMP anwsers, but ssh is still throwing the error no route to host?
