Hello, I've spend a lot of time with this and I would gladly pay 10$(paypal) for a solution to my problem:

I can't manage to deploy Openstack with Public and Private Network Topology

Host Machine: Windows 7 x64:

GATEWAY: (assign from

Installed Virtual Box:

Adapter 1 -Internal Network

Adapter 2 - Bridged Adapter

Guest Machine: Ubuntu x64

Primary Network Interface eth1 static; gateway
           and       auto eth0 static;, netmask  (no gateway)

Can someone tell me what to write in my localrc to have a PUBLIC and PRIVATE NETWORK.

> My current localrc is:
> NETWORK_GATEWAY= didn't worked for me - I only see private-net in my Network Topology...Someone PLEASE HELP!

andrew88, I can fully understand your pain! I have also suffered this kind of network problem last month.

Normally, in virtualbox I use two network adapters: NAT and private network respectively. For bridge network adapters, the public external network can't contact with the routable gateway( in your case).

I changed from devstack+virtualbox to packstack+vmware for below reasons:

1. virtualbox doesn't support kvm and nested vm, which seems to be the most hypervisor, if you want to have a taste for full features of OpenStack
2. With packstack, we can have far better documentation, compared to devstack. And deploying multinodes+neutron gre environment is less pain.
