Problem with dashboard - connection time out

I have followed all the instructions for installing Kilo on my CentOS 7 single box installation.

It all works fine, but the dashboard.

I can't get to the dashboard. I get a connection timeout.

If I do a wget "http://<ipaddress>/dashboard" from the machine running the dashboard, it retrieves it ok.

If I do it from another server I get "no route to host". I can ping and SSH to the server from that host without issue.

Now here's the strange part. If I start iptables, I can get to it, but then the rest of openstack won't work (get messaging failures in nova-conductor).

I setup another system as a controller as a test, and I have the same issue.

Any thoughts?

Here's another weird thing.

If I start and stop iptables on the 2nd server, it will work.

So I got this working.

I ran the following command AFTER the system boots:

iptables -A -i <ethernet> -j ACCEPT

The strange thing is that iptables service is not present or running. I think it's something built into the libvert module?

Ok, this was apparently a CentOS 7 thing. CentOS 7 has replaced iptables with firewalld.

Once I disabled firewalld, I was able to get in OK.
