Host OS: ubuntu-desktop 14.04 x86_64 3 Node Architecture (compute, controller, network) with ubuntu-server-14.04 x86_64 VirtualBox 4.3.10_ubuntu

I have followed this juno installation guide, I've setup my virtuabox environment similar to the instruction from this link and got ideas on openstack networking from this article.

Network configuration on virtualbox for Network Node

eth0 NAT

eth3 bridge

I have assigned vsc-vsctl add-port br-ex to eth3

I am able to ping and ssh my instance from host and nodes, nodes have internet connection, nodes can ping and ssh other nodes, I can ping external gateway and qrouter from network node from host, nodes and instances. I have created security-group-rule and tried /sbin/iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE and other similar commands to no avail. Are there any other troubleshooting steps that I need to perform? Is it even possible to simulate a production like openstack on virtualbox?

Yes, it's possible and yes, there are a lot of things that are complex. Search this site for hints on how to solve connectivity issues.
