I need to create 2 VM instances in different private subnets in the same tenant. Consider one network to be and the other to be Consider the IP addresses on the VM instances to be and Now I want to create a Router between these two VM instances so that the instances can communicate to each other.

Can this be achieved?

Creating 2 routers one for each subnet with gateway set to public network, will solve the problem, but I want to know whether a router can be created between 2 VM instances in 2 private subnets?

Yes, We can create a router and attach the multiple subnets to the same router using "neutron router-interface-add" command.

Yes, it is possible.

Basically you have to create the two internal networks (with the provided subnets), the router, and add one interface on the router for each subnet. Then the VMs on the two internal networks are reachable from each other. Test it and let us know if it works.

This did not work out. I got things to work only if the router's gateway is set to public network' gateway.
