I have done Openstack setup through Devstack single server installation in which I have launched an windows instance, with private IP configuration and Public IP configuration, A bridge network is also created on the host network same as a public IP configuration. I am able to ping the Host IP from inside the instance but the Instance floating IP is not pingable. I have also disabled the firewall inside the instance but no result.

What should be done inorder to access it through the host system?

The default security group (firewall around the instance) blocks all incoming traffic and allows all outgoing traffic. You need to add an ICMP rule to the security group so that the instance receives the echo requests.

In order to take windows instance on RDP from a different public network, can setting up VPN help ?

This seems to be unrelated to your original question. Better submit a new question and provide a more detailed description.
