I have installed JUNO openstack using --allinone and configure flat networking using following link, I want my VM directly connected to my existing network no more NAT and floating IP thing.

I can ping br-ex ip address but i can't ping outside Hosts ip address, I am doing testing on VirtualBox.

[root@openstack ~(keystone_admin)]# ifconfig br-ex
br-ex: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500
        inet  netmask  broadcast
        inet6 fe80::98cd:fdff:fe81:a44a  prefixlen 64  scopeid 0x20<link>

VM IP address is and from VM i can ping but i can't ping my Host machine which is

I have allowed ICMP and SSH both in security group.
