What Andrew said… AFAIK, the only thing you can not configure is which ip address the erlang vm listens on. I think it will listen on all available ip addresses ( Note that this is different from the riak process itself, which can be limited to a specific ip. That's at least what I came up with last I looked into it about a year ago. I would love to hear otherwise.
