have you tried changing to the real IP of your machine running nova-api

also ami-tty doesn't work with ajax-console :( You will need to use a full linux image.

Have you set the flag "--ajax_console_proxy_url" in nova.conf? It has to point to your running "nova-ajax-console-proxy" service, for example "http://PROXY_HOST:8000".

And it's not right that you need a "full" linux image, you just have to enable a serial console on the image and I think you have to disable the "write serial console output into a file" entry in the libvirt.xml.template (it's activated per default in the libvirt.xml.template and there are some problems).

Also you should try a newer revision, there were some bugs in nova-ajax-console-proxy, they are fixed in the lastest revision.

Can you help with this problem?
