Step-by-step instructions for getting started with Chameleon are available in the Getting Started section of this documentation. These instructions include using basic networking functionality.
Floating IP Addresses¶
Instances on Chameleon are assigned a fixed IP address that can be used for local connectivity as well as NAT access to the public Internet. A publicly accessible IPv4 address (Floating IP address) is required in order to access Chameleon instances from the Internet or host public services. CHI@TACC and CHI@UC each have a limited number of public IP addresses that can be allocated to your instances.
The Getting Started guide shows how to allocate Floating IP address to your nodes.
The Chameleon floating IP address pool is a shared and finite resource. Please be responsible and release any unused floating IP address, so other Chameleon users and projects can use them!
