Hi Antonio, 

Can you check the output of `riak-admin status` on both machines? Specifically, what are the values of `nodename` and `ring_members`?

Also, can you share the vm.args files from both machines?

I have changed the to the actual IP in the app.config and have changed the name in the vm.args on each of the VMs. I can ping, telnet, ssh from one machine to the other but no matter what I do I keep getting the not reachable error when I type 'riak-admin join riak at (mailto:riak at'. I have read and tried everything described in a thread talking about this problem in a EC2 cluster but nothing I do seems to work. Anyone have any ideas?
