Hi All,

I am a beginner and still struggling with Openstack.

I am trying to install Openstack using Devstack on a single machine, using the following link:

My objective is to make this machine an experimental cloud server to provide SaaS on a local area network My machine has a static IP adddress: This IP address is set in the router that this machine is connected to

The above link gives an example of the content of local.conf


Please tell me what should I put in for FLOATING_RANGE and FIXED_RANGE in my case

To launch an instance later, Openstack will ask for floating IPs also. Please also tell what values to provide there

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks in advance

Hamid Sultan

Hi, floating network are your external networks and fixed are networks created in openstack for internal use between instances, so that network can be at any range.

Guessing you have a /24 netmask, your floating network will be as follow:


When you launch an instance, add the internal network(fixed) to that instance, once the instance is running, create a floating ip(external) and attach it to the instance.

You should reach the vm from any computer in your network ( trough the floating ip.
