The provider network needs to be connected to the internet. If you use the centralized router, only the controller needs to be connected to the provider network.

EDIT: To connect self-service networks to the outside world, the physical setup doesn't change. You need at least one provider network connected to outside. You then create a neutron network that maps to it - known as your external network. One or more Neutron routers attach self-service networks to the external network.

Physical networks used for management or self-service traffic don't have to be connected to outside (and it's probably best if they are not).

Thanks. I want to provide internet also for self-service networks. I know that I have to create a vrouter, But I dont know the physical setup.
