After testing the Mirantis Fuel 8.0 in a Windows host all was fine. I'm able to go to the Fuel panel ( ) from the host machine.

Now, I've installed an Ubuntu server with virtualbox and do the fuel install. Without the host browser (and not any desktop utility) how can I access the Fuel interface and the OpenStack Horizon from outside the host machine since this IP ( network ) is not visible by my home network ( ) ?

It's Ubuntu Server host machine hosting a VirtualBox headless environment. I have no Desktop or any resource to "navigate" from the host machine. Need to do this by outside (a Notebook or other machine in my home network)

look if you can configure an ssh access to your machine. when you access through putty or console shell.. i think you cloud access the dashboard

The answer came from here ( ( PT_BR sorry ).

Lets say your host machine is Add this iptables rules to the host machine.

iptables -I FORWARD -d -m comment --comment "Accept to forward Fuel DashBoard traffic" -m tcp -p tcp --dport 8443 -j ACCEPT
iptables -I FORWARD -m comment --comment "Accept to forrward Fuel DashBoard return traffic" -s -m tcp -p tcp --sport 8443 -j ACCEPT
iptables -t nat -I PREROUTING -m tcp -p tcp --dport 8443 -m comment --comment "redirect pkts to virtual machine" -j DNAT --to-destination
iptables -t nat -I POSTROUTING -m comment --comment "NAT the src ip" -d -o vboxnet0 -j MASQUERADE

Now will access Fuel at
