I have OpenStack Havanna deployed on Ubuntu 12.04 Server and have two instances running on it.

I can successfully PING from/to my Win 8.1 and the OpenStack' host Ubuntu 12.04 Server(which is installed in VMWare Wrokstation 10).

I have Apache installed on an instance. I can successfully access Apache's page form OpenStack's host.

I want to know how do I access instance's Apache's webpage from my Win 8.1

I think you could simply solve your problem using Bridged networking in vmware.

In this case if your windows PM is, your Ubuntu one could easily be Then in Openstack you should create an external network and a virtual router that connects this network to the internal one (to which you attach apache VMs)

Could you share your configuration? what is the IP of windows PM? and which is the apache vm one? could you ping those IPs from virtual router?

I can PING my Ubuntu (on which OpenStack is deployed) from my Win 8.1. Yes, I can access Apache page (on instance) from Ubuntu (on which OpenStack is deployed).

What I want is, Access the Instance's Apache webpage from Win 8.1... I have already tried bridged networking. that doesnt affect
