Hi tcheung ,

Will the VM s have access to Public API endpoints ? I tried to run curl command from a VM instance to compute API public endpoint but it its resulting in 'cannot connect error'. Is there some configuration to be made to allow VM s to access API endpoints? I am working on Havana version of OpenStack

Public endpoint is one of the choices, but it may involves setting on external switch so request from VM and reach these public endpoints. Do you think public endpoint is the only choice?
