floating_ip_pool_name = network.networks.get(router.external_gateway_info["network_id"]).name
# => "IO.IP"

Use the pool name to provision a floating IP:

AWS VPC fog snippets

Find a RouteTable for a given public Subnet:

subnet = Fog::Compute["aws"].subnets.last
subnet_id = subnet.subnet_id

rts = Fog::Compute["aws"].route_tables
route_table_for_subnet = rts.find {|rt| rt.associations.find {|assoc| assoc["subnetId"] == subnet_id} }
You can’t perform that action at this time.
