I ran through the conjure-up setup for Ubuntu Server 17.04 OpenStack Nova LXD. It completed successfully.

The only difference between the setup video and my install was that I ran the setup through an SSH shell as I'm not running a Desktop OS.

Presumably this is why it did not provide the instructions for how to connect to the management IP ( http://"horizon-ip"/horizon ). I'm guessing that the WebUI component is running in an lxd container.

How do I gain access to the WebUI from my network? I assumed this would be the preferred manner of access since this is all running in a cloud, but the conjure-up setup seems to think all access would be local.


You can achieve this by one of these two way:

  1. Add one rule to the iptables

    In this case, you should just run this command.

    sudo iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp --dport 443 -j DNAT --to-destination <<horizon-ip>>:443

    you can access to horizon dashborad via https://<<horizon-ip>>/horizon

  2. Setup NginX

    sudo apt install nginx

    add these configuration to vim /etc/nginx/site-enables/openstack.conf

    server {
      listen  81;
      server_name <<server-ip>>;
      location / {
        proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
        proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
        proxy_set_header X-NginX-Proxy true;
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;
        proxy_redirect off;
        proxy_pass http://<<horizon-ip>>/;

    sudo service nginx reload

    Now you can access to the horizon dashboard via http://<<server-ip>>:81/horizon
