I have access in virtual sources of my University, i am trying to install openstack for learning purposes (version Queens) i made 2 virtual machines (one for controller & one for compute) but the university gives only one ipv4 per account so i made the controller as a router and i attached compute to it. Now i am in neutron service and i was wondering which option for network configuration is the best ( (

p.s i am using os ubuntu 16.04

Thank you!

No need for the controller to be a router. You connect compute and controller with private networks, which are easily implemented virtually.

To learn OpenStack, you should definitely explore both options 1 and 2.

provider network is a better choice router is not very stable and harder to config to work

If you are in University with limited access to network infastracture I think overlay network (with router and layer 3 agent) is the best, because I don't know if you switches allow you to pass vlans as segmentation method. From the other hand this way is more complicated and has same limitations like smaller MTU.
