The OpenStack tool primarily used for managing Cloud Networks is written in Python and called neutron. It is also known as python-neutronclient.
We recommend that you use the Python Package Index (PyPI) to install neutronclient, because it installs dependencies and required packages for you.
Alternatively, you can download the
rackspace-neutronclient package from
GitHub repository for rackspace-neutronclient.
The following OpenStack documents can help you install neutronclient and learn to use it:
- Install the OpenStack command-line clients
- OpenStack Command-Line Interface Reference, especially at Networking command-line client
- Python bindings to the OpenStack Network API
You can use OpenStack documentation to help you learn to use OpenStack CLIs in the Rackspace Cloud. OpenStack documents describe general practice; you should expect to supply some Rackspace-specific details. Use your Rackspace credentials where the OpenStack examples ask for OpenStack credentials.
