      In my configuration files, I specifiy:


      The name node server binds to address external-ip:8020, while all the data nodes try to connect to internal-ip:8020, and nothing works.

      Low-level: I've traced this down as far as org.apache.hadoop.ipc.Server, private class Listener.

        /** Listens on the socket. Creates jobs for the handler threads*/
        private class Listener extends Thread {
          private ServerSocketChannel acceptChannel = null; //the accept channel
          private Selector selector = null; //the selector that we use for the server
          private InetSocketAddress address; //the address we bind at
          private Random rand = new Random();
          private long lastCleanupRunTime = 0; //the last time when a cleanup connec-
                                               //-tion (for idle connections) ran
          private long cleanupInterval = 10000; //the minimum interval between 
                                                //two cleanup runs
          private int backlogLength = conf.getInt("ipc.server.listen.queue.size", 128);
          public Listener() throws IOException {
            address = new InetSocketAddress(bindAddress, port);
            LOG.info("in Server/Listener. bindAddress=" + bindAddress + ", address="+address);    //Added by EA for testing
            // Create a new server socket and set to non blocking mode
            acceptChannel = ServerSocketChannel.open();
            // Bind the server socket to the local host and port
            bind(acceptChannel.socket(), address, backlogLength);
            port = acceptChannel.socket().getLocalPort(); //Could be an ephemeral port

      The problem seems to be in the line

      address = new InetSocketAddress(bindAddress, port);

      . bindAddress contains the DNS name of the internal interface, but address comes out with the IP address of the external interface.
