This requires more information. Are you using custom Images or are you using images provided by the community? If they are not configured to output to the console then the console will be empty. You can verify this with:

nova console-log {instance-uuid}

If it is a configuration issue with nova.conf then you can verify the configuration and see why you are unable to hit the endpoint that is listening for novnc. You will need to point the nova.conf proxy address over to the controller:


Also keep in mind that the controller IP address you are using needs to be route-able from your location. If you can't hit the IP from your desktop then you aren't going to be able to view the console as it is just displaying information from that address. When you select it in full screen mode you are pulling up the IP address specified in the nova.conf file.
