what must i made to access an Instance in my openstack Enviroment from the outside world?

I my case i have a server, on them openstack is running. One instance, the Load Balancer have an Flooting IP adress, 172.x.x.x . The IP from the Server is 123.XXX.XXX.XXX.

Now i want to connect to the 172.XXX.XXX.XXX from another laptop in the same Network, which is the server located.

I know something about port forwarding so when i hit http://123.XXX.XXX.XXX:9990 , i came to http://172.XXX.XXX.XXX

What must i do to get access to my floating ip.

The Server is running on ubuntu server and my client (laptop) is a mac or windows pc.

I want to make a Jmeter Script Test, to actually test the response times in dependencies of my heat-ceilometer-template....

My devstack stable is kilo.

Hope u can help me.

Best Regards, Christian

There are a lot of possible issue here, just a small selection:

  • check your securitygroup rules
  • check the routing tables inside the affected namespaces
  • investigate the traffic on neutron network node, compute node and inside the instance via tcpdump
