Hi, i have a trouble in getting rdp console work. My console always falls back to Login Page of Webconnect.

I have FreeRdp-html5-proxy-Webconnect in Hyperv node itself.

The nova-consoleauth log in controller says:

2014-08-04 16:37:53.672 1175 AUDIT nova.consoleauth.manager [req-e21b7b28-cc44-40a2-a1a6-a02752cf0388 d82b253311974eb491c06d702b71ee08 a42c938d46c74b1ab7dded24b602b424] Received Token: a1e16a4d-04b2-415e-bdf6-1538c1dec6a1, {‘instance_uuid’: u’076171fb-4c41-481f-b396-f47abe3eb7a0′, ‘internal_access_path’: u’6531E6A0-5C58-4D22-9713-889E8B65584A’, ‘last_activity_at’: 1407150473.672567, ‘console_type’: u’rdp-html5′, ‘host’: u’′, ‘token’: u’a1e16a4d-04b2-415e-bdf6-1538c1dec6a1′, ‘port’: 2179}


  • internal_access_path: is vm-id in hyperv

  • instance_uuid: is vm-id in openstack dashboard

  • host ip is hyperv host-ip (

I can connect to vm in 2179 port using webconnect login-pass which i gave in wsgate.ini

My ml2_config.ini

Everything else works perfectly other than direct console access.

Do anybody get anything that where i gone wrong. Thanks.

Hello all, the problem is solved :) The Cloudbase FreeRDP Webconnect for Windows is working well.

The problem was in dns. i added my controller ip to Hyper-v hosts local host file. Now things working fine. I used only ip addresse's for configuring Hyper-v but it needs names resolvable, I dont know why.

Anyway thanks for peoples who made FreeRdp Webconnect integrated with Hyper-v and openstack. And thanks for other supports you provided.

Hope to Find a stable version of release soon :)

Can you share a summary of your configuration, specifically any changes that need to be set on the controllers? Documentation on Hyper-V and openstack is fairly limited. I am using Kilo if it helps.

Hi, glad you have it working!

We are currently planning a new release with better Apache / Nginx and IIS integration, so hopefully we'll have some updates soon!

Can you provide a summary of your config on the hyper-v side and more importantly on the controller side to get this running? Documentation is extremely limited in this area.
