I can SSH using the floating IP but I can't use it for other applications

I assigned a floating IP to a few instances. I can use these IPs to SSH to the nodes but once I install an application such as Bacula and try to use the IPs to connect the client and the server they do no work. I can ping the machines using the floating IPs just fine. I can also use the internal IPs to get a local client to connect to the server.

I opened all the ports, made sure the configurations are correct, and searched the issue and could not find a solution.

Is there anything that limits me from using the floating IP addresses with other applications? I'm using OpenStack Liberty on CloudLab instances.

Could anyone help me with this?

Did you configure TCP ports in default security group ( I mean neutron chains ) ?
Anyway, if this is done, verify neutron chains per

I am not sure. CloudLab automatically installs OpenStack. How can I check that?
