Trouble binding to public IP

I'm attempting to run riak in a cluster of EC2 nodes.

I've modified my vm.args file as follows:

--- ./etc/vm.args.ORIG	2010-01-03 01:09:38.000000000 +0000
+++ ./etc/vm.args	2010-01-12 01:23:31.000000000 +0000
@@ -1,6 +1,6 @@

  ## Name of the riak node
--name riak at
+-name riak

  ## Cookie for distributed erlang
  -setcookie riak

This doesn't seem to do it; netstat -nap still only shows the port bound.

I also tried w/
but no love either.

Any clues to what I might be doing wrong?

Many thanks in advance!
