I am trying to install Openstack based on the architecture of three nodes (controller, network and compute). Each node is a VM VirtualBox with Ubuntu 14.04 server installed. But I'm having trouble configuring the network.

With VirtualBox I configured the network adapters as follows:

controller: Adapter 1 -> Internal network, called "management".

network: Adapter 1 -> Internal network, called "management". Adapter 2 -> Internal network, called "tunnel". Adapter 3 -> Bridged Adapther with the host.

compute1: Adapter 1 -> Internal network, called "management". Adapter 2 -> Internal network, called "tunnel".

And when I configuring interfaces within the systems I become a mess.

The IPs for internal network ( and put them as is and get the machines to see each other.

For external network node interface (bridged adapter) I apply the special configuration that tells me the documentation (without IP).

The problem is that I can not access the outside (just look between them), I have tried to change the gateway the documentation says by using my home network but nothing.

How should I configure IPs on each node if the home network using

Please check this blog, It installs a virtualbox based environment using devstack. So basically it's neutron multinode devstack with vxlan tunneling.
