Subject RE: Create Guest network for a user

Dean, replies inline. Let me take a crack at this, just from reading the docs, although I might
be off base (anyone: please correct me if so). 

Maybe either our docs have the info you need...or else you have discovered a need for doc

Subject: Re: Create Guest network for a user

Thank you, forgive my horrible spelling, as I have sent that email from my
phone and stupid keyboard has auto correct enabled, which apparently messed
things up.

As for the "global network" I went to service offerings and I found an
option to create a shared network as you mentioned, 

(JT) Do you mean as described here: [1]
>> "4. Click Add Network Offering.
5. In the dialog, make the following choices:
Guest Type. Choose whether the guest network is isolated or shared."

but I couldn't find any
option to make it public.

(JT) That might be available through some of the other choices in that same Add Network Offering

Supported Services. Select one or more of the possible network services. 

System Offering. If the service provider for any of the services selected in Supported Services
is a virtual router, the System Offering field appears. Choose the system service offering
that you want virtual routers to use in this network....
For more information, see Section 8.2, “System Service Offerings”.

Section 8.2 is here: [2]
It describes creating a new system service offering. There is a checkbox there for Public.
In System VM Type in the same dialog, I assume you'd have to pick Virtual Router.

As for how/whether you can create a public (aka, available in all domains) network if you're
not using the CloudStack virtual router...I'm not sure!

(JT) Footnotes:
