The type of driver you want is dependent on they type of network you are planning to use.

When in doubt you can use all 4 drivers, as it just imports them so the functions can be used.

flat - you are using the native network on the network interface vlan - you are using a tagged network on the netowrk interface gre and vxlan - using tunnels for connecting the compute nodes to the network node.

Unless you are using provider networks with vlans you most likely will want flat, and either gre or vxlan.

Thank you for the explanation. So, what i need in openstack is to connect two network(external and internal) with a router. Note that i use a classically access point to connect the physical carte of the server to the internet. So what can I configured to reach my purpose ?
