Hello All,

I am a new user and I couldn't find any relevant answers for my question.

I have installed Openstack kilo with 3 node architecture in Ubuntu 14.04 using the below link:

http://docs.openstack.org/kilo/install-guide/install/apt/content/ (http://docs.openstack.org/kilo/instal...)

I am able to stage it successfully. Now, I want to install Fwaas in this architecture(Looks like there is a panel named Firewall appears in Horizon > network link after installing this?)

I couldn't find any doc related to this. Could someone please provide any pointer for this?

Thanks in Advance!!!

Finally, I enabled the Firewall as a Service in Openstack kilo by the below procedure. Just adding this so that it may help someone.

  1. Added "service_plugins = router,neutron_fwaas.services.firewall.fwaas_plugin.FirewallPlugin" in neutron.conf on both controller and network node.
  2. Added the below line in fwaas_driver.ini on network node.

    [DEFAULT] [fwaas] driver = neutron_fwaas.services.firewall.drivers.linux.iptables_fwaas.IptablesFwaasDriver enabled = True

  3. Restarted all neutron services in Network node and neutron server in controller node.
  4. Set "True" against firewall in local_settings.py on controller node and restarted apache.

That's it! Got the firewall panel on the Horizon GUI. Also able to apply FW policies to the VMs from the router level.

Thanks, craja
