mmm, cassandra normally resolves the name to the IP address and binds to that. So it should just work if you are using localhost and that’s setup correctly. 

Can you just use 127.0.0.1 ?

If I set ‘listen_address’ in ‘/etc/cassandra/cassandra.yml’:
listen_address: localhost

I can telnet:

telnet <hostname> 9160 -YES
telnet <ip address> 9160 -YES
telnet localhost 9160 - NO

I’m trying to get Usergrid to see Cassandra on localhost, which it currently is unable to do. Usergrid is running on Tomcat6.
