I am new to Cassandra, and setting up a cluster for the first time with 1.1.1. There are three nodes, 1 acts as a seed node that all three have the ip address of that node as their seed. I have set the listen address to the address of each node and rpc address as I turned the trace on on all three and see the GOSSIP messages between seed node and the other two, not between the two non-seed nodes, sometime I see connection timeout between seed node and the nodes but not very often; However nodetool -h address ring only shows one node in each machine (the localhost) a,d when I define a keyspace with any replication factor the begin and end token of the keyspace is the localhost token.

P.S. i have generated tokens for each node.

What did I miss here?
