Unable to Connect Instance to External Network

Im getting into OpenStack, but cannot figure out, why i can't connect my vm to an external network. Infos: What i have done:

External Network:

Internal Network:

Set up Solaris 11.3 OpenStack Single System UAR. And configured the Networks like this:

# keystone tenant-list
|                id                |   name  | enabled |
| 0382766fea50433d8fc5c4605548231e |   demo  |   True  |
| 8cbae9fd55ba491c8019ace305f07b24 | service |   True  |
# neutron net-create --provider:network_type=vlan --router:external=false --tenant-id 0382766fea50433d8fc5c4605548231e INT
# neutron subnet-create --disable-dhcp --name int_subnet --tenant-id 0382766fea50433d8fc5c4605548231e INT
# svcadm enable ipfilter
# ipadm set-prop -p forwarding=on ipv4
# evsadm set-controlprop -p vlan-range=1,200-300

# neutron router-create --tenant-id 8cbae9fd55ba491c8019ace305f07b24 gateway_router
# echo "router_id = 58845b01-9f0c-4eff-a327-ba4c0ac6aaec" >> /etc/neutron/l3_agent.ini
# svcadm enable neutron-l3-agent
# neutron net-create --provider:network_type=vlan --tenant-id 8cbae9fd55ba491c8019ace305f07b24 --provider:segmentation_id=1 --router:external=true EXT
# neutron subnet-create --tenant-id 8cbae9fd55ba491c8019ace305f07b24 --disable-dhcp --name ext_subnet EXT --gateway_ip

# neutron router-gateway-set gateway_router EXT
# neutron router-interface-add gateway_router efcfd2a4-5c2f-48fb-9442-b598806ca484
# neutron floatingip-create --tenant-id 0382766fea50433d8fc5c4605548231e EXT

Everything pretty straight forward. Then i created an instance in the private Network and attached the floating ip of the external network. On the Controller Node, all the vnic's and adresses look good:

# ipadm

Nat is enabled:

# ipnat -l
List of active MAP/Redirect filters:
rdr l3i8988ed47_0_0 port 80 -> port 9697 tcp
map l3e625b114d_b_0 ->
bimap l3e625b114d_b_0 ->

But i cannot ping the vm from outside, or ping any resources on the external network from the vm. Did i miss something?

Any help would be appreciated.
