Riak Cluster Setup on EC2

Hi folks

I am trying to set up a Riak cluster on EC2.
Each time I issue a command :

$ sudo riak-admin join riak at

It fails :

Attempting to restart script through sudo -u riak

Node riak at is not reachable!

Netstat on both the machines says the ports are running fine.

netstat -na | egrep '(8087|8098|8099)'

tcp        0      0  *               LISTEN

tcp        0      0  *               LISTEN

tcp        0      0  *               LISTEN

I can telnet to all the ports from each of the machine.
I have been pulling my hair for long but of no avail.
Can any one look and tell me what I am doing wrong.
Are there any debug logs where I can look at what is going wrong?
Is there any EC2 specific trick (like using public hostnames).

I am attaching my app.cfg file for reference.
