Silly me.  On windows it has to be changed in $CASSANDRA_HOME/bin/cassandra.bat

An instance of Cassandra starts and is listening on the ports described below:

Port Description Defined In
9160 Client traffic via the Thrift protocol cassandra.yaml
7000 Cluster traffic via gossip cassandra.yaml
8080 Port for monitoring attributes via JMX
My $CASSANDRA_HOME/conf/ has no configuration for JMX.  



When I change this, the port change isn't reflected.  

I am starting cassandra with:  cassandra -f

I'd like to change the default port...
