We're created a tenant in openstack and assigned /29 ips for an external network from the tenant account. We used this floating ips for instances.

Instances are talking to each other using internal ips. But floating ips are reachable from external world.

External network gateway ips is pinging fine though.

What could be the issue? should we add external ips as admin user?

Thank you

There are many moving parts and configuration options. It's not possible to help you without knowing how you set up the cloud and the external network, how the external network is mapped to the datacenter network, how the instances are networked, how and from where you attempt to access them etc.

How did you connect hnexternal to the external world?

Normally it's mapped to a bridge that includes a NIC of the host. For example, see my question a few months ago.
