Could someone help me with external network configuration?

I am running Multi-Node Openstack environments

Home network: with network access (router with DHCP and NAT)

Controller node - Compute node - Network node -

I deployed it through RDO. Answer file below:

Could someone tell me how I need to configure external network to get internet access from instances?

I have 2 network

ext-network - (type Flat, Physical Network "br-ex" as current interface name on network node, set as "External Network", Network (for separate IPs), Gateway IP int-network - (type local)

In project I added Router and set gateway on ext-network and enable SNAT. I also add Interface to Router (internal and external).

Problem is that:

1) Internal Interface shows as "Active", and from instance I can ping router gateway - 2) Instance has not network access, external interface shows as "DOWN". traceroute is holding on (internal gateway)

My question is in external network should I set gateway phisical router in network ( or gateway as network node ip - or something else? Something I miss?

I can’t see your answer file because doesn’t work with mobile Apple devices, but did you follow these instructions:

I.e. you need to insert your home network interface in br-ex.
