how do I allocate a public IP to new VM by default

hi,

so we're POCing OpenStack but do not want/need the "private interface" as it'd be used as an internal / private cloud only, how can I / we allocate a "public IP" to every new VM from a pool and "get rid" of the internal bridge/network (as we wont need it) ?

Thanks!

Alex

Update:

hi all, thanks for the replies!

so to try and explain a little more detail .. we still want the tenants and everything that's comes with it regarding restrictions of resources etc.. however we wont have a 'public network's per se, it's a privet class B network range instead. the vms that are being crated by the tenants would only ever need that 'public IP address' (which in reality is a class B network) - there is no need for a private network to be created and it would probably just confuse the users..

so is it not 'simply' possible to allocate a public IP from a pool, e.g. the floating IP pool, by default to all VMs created irrelevant of the tenant / project they're part of?

i try and draw it up when I'm home :)

thanks for your help! Alex
