Hooray!  I've also just committed a patch to the riak-admin script,
which really solves the problem by learning the proper way to specify
a node name by copying the format of the -name parameter in
etc/vm.args.  You should be able to revert your change and pull down
the latest version from

If you're talking about the http interface, over which your
application will probably talk to riak, edit the 'riak_web_ip' setting
in etc/app.config.  Either your external IP or "" should work.

If you're talking about the erlang interface, which Riak cluster nodes
use to connect to each other, change the IP address after the '@' in
the -name parameter of etc/vm.args.
