Subject Re: Unable to connect to cassandra server on EC2?
Date Sun, 10 Aug 2014 13:13:21 GMT

While I have no direct experience with the Python driver itself I took a
quick and it uses Cassandra's native transport protocol, so setting the
port to 9160 (Thrift protocol) won't work. You will need to set it to the
native transport port, which is 9042.

Also make sure that you have the rpc_address (and if needed
broadcast_rpc_address) set correctly.

On a side note, if you are trying out 2.1.0, 2.1.0-rc5 is out and with many
fixes and improvements.
