I currently have openstack running on my own HP Z600 in my house and I would like to be able to access and use it from across the internet as if I was sat in my local network, so i want to be able to access horizon and have its full functionality. I have looked online but can't seems to find any information as openstack is vast.

Details of my build: Installed via RDO pack stack Kilo

Any help is much appreciated

This is less of an OpenStack question, and more of a networking question. The short answer is that you will need to port-forward external connections to this internal machine, at your border router. The longer answer will depend greatly on what kind of a router you have at the edge of your network, and your Internet Service Provider's specific policies around permitting hosted services.

With regards to forwarding ports to the server this isn't an issue as I can port forward without any issues the question was more aimed at aside from port forwarding is there anything that needs to be running on openstack in addition to the standard services?

The reason i ask is that is it just a case of forwarding the ports and it working or is additional work required. I am going off the ports on this website as well: (

Also with regards to the ISP I'm not sure but I am only hosting it for myself so I don't see an issue with this at all personally. If I was hosting a load of servers and making money off them then I would understand it being different.

this is not an answer. Edit your question to add more details, don't use this site as a discussion forum
