I'm just getting started with openstack using devstack and following the quick start guide w/the all in one single machine setup on a home network. Everything seems to have gone fine with the install and startup but I can't connect to the Horizon dashboard. As recommended I changed the host machine's IP to be static. Here is what I know so far:

  • From my MAC book Pro I can ping the host IP but I can't connect to the Horizon dashboard.
  • Under details for the failed connection I get "Google Chrome's connection attempt to was rejected".
  • In I can see "Configuring and starting Horizon" among the status messages.
  • running "sudo netstat -nap | grep 80" shows httpd listening on
  • I don't think the linksys is interfering as from the same laptop I can connect to a NAS hosted dashboard I have on the same network.
  • After a failed attempt if I look under /etc/httpd/logs I don't see any recent logging activity. Its as though packets aren't being delivered to httpd.

Any suggestions or pointers would be appreciated.

If it looks like packets aren't being delivered to httpd maybe they're not delivered :) make sure there is no firewall rule blocking port 80.
