> In the cassandra.yaml file when "rpc_interface" option is set it causes a NPE (stack
trace at the end).
> Upon further investigation it turns out that there is a serious problem is in the way
this logic is handled in the code DatabaseDescriptor.java (#374).
> Following is the code snippet 
>  else if (conf.rpc_interface != null)
>         {
>             listenAddress = getNetworkInterfaceAddress(conf.rpc_interface, "rpc_interface");
>         }
>         else
>         {
>             rpcAddress = FBUtilities.getLocalAddress();
>         }
> If you notice, 
> 1) The code above sets the "listenAddress" instead of "rpcAddress".  
> 2) The function getNetworkInterfaceAddress() blindly assumes that this is called to set
the "listenAddress" (see line 171). The "configName" variable passed to the function is royally
ignored and only used for printing out exception (which again is misleading)
> I am also attaching a suggested patch (NOTE: the patch tries to address this issue, the
function getNetworkInterfaceAddress() needs revision ).
