Unable to access external network

I have performed a packstack install (latest version) and run an all-in-one deployment which completed successfully. Upon completion I have created an internal and external within the horizon dashboard. I can assign IPs on both networks but I can only access them from the packstack server using ip netns, for example ip netns exec qrouter-2a65e98f-9bd3-4573-9330-3aee921b98bf ssh -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa centos@ However, I am not able to simply ssh in using the external IP address. I set the gateway on the router to use the external network but I have since noticed that the status of this is down and it states VIF type binding failed. Unfortunately everything i seem to try results in the same down status.

The installation was a standard allinone install attempting to use my network packstack --allinone --provision-demo=n --os-neutron-ovs-bridge-mappings=extnet:br-ex --os-neutron-ovs-bridge-interfaces=br-ex:enp2s0f0 --os-neutron-ml2-type-drivers=vxlan,flat.

I have looked online at a number of resources but I have not been able to identify the cause. I am fairly new to Openstack so any help would be much appreciated? Please let me know if any additional information is needed.

The issue was due to my error when creating the external network in the Horizon dashboard. I was mistakenly setting the wrong Physical Network - which should have been extnet which matches the bridge. The following command helped also helped by creating the external network from the command line.

neutron net-create external_network --provider:network_type flat --provider:physical_network extnet --router:external
