Instances can ping each other but are unable to ping which is the default gateway for ext-net. If you need any more info, please ask, I'll be happy to provide it.

Check that your router namespace has both network connections created, On your controller, use: $ ip netns To see all of the namespaces $ ip netns exec <qrotuer-uuid> ip a This will list the network interfaces in that particular namespace, you should see and interface on each network.
