Just pick one of the public IPs to be seed.

If it is working each :7002 will show all the nodes.

Right.  The only thing you that should be different is the
ListenAddress section.  (You can try leaving that out and Cassandra
will pick an interface to use but it often guesses a non-public
interface which is not helpful. :)

You can start from an existing one if it's really legitimate for all
nodes to have copies of that data but it probably is not.

Okay, so the problems are that (1) it thinks it is connected when it
is not, and (2) it allows you to run commands when it is not
connected.  Right?  Can you file those in the issue tracker?
