I am new fairly to OpenStack, i made a simple private network, attached one instance to it, and connected it to the external network using one router, but the status of all the ports is always DOWN. For the same reason I cannot ping or use ssh as well. I tried doing this:

$ neutron port-update <portid> --status ACTIVE

But it gave an error: Cannot update read-only attribute status

Can anyone please tell me a command to make the status of the port ACTIVE, I have been struggling with it since yesterday.

I am also having this same error. The port will just stay that way. Does anyone here have an answer that might point us in the right direction?
