I've installed Cassandra Community Edition for windows (which was blissfully easy), have the Ops Center running, and with the CQL shell I've created a keyspace, columnFamily and some test data.
I then wanted to try testing it using Python, downloaded CQL-python driver, and edited the py script to be the right connection details. However when I run this python script it hangs - I get the 'not responding' message and eventually have to kill the Python process.
Next up I tried connecting using RCassandra to look at the data via R. Running:
conn = RC.connect('127.0.0.1', 8888)
seems fine (at least gives no errors), but then calling:
also causes R to not respond and I have to kill the process.
You can probably tell I'm a complete n00b to Cassandra, but I seem to be getting a common theme here when trying to do anything beyond establishing a connection from anything external.
Any ideas what could be happening? Checking the Ops Center events log shows nothing untoward, I don't have any software firewalls running and the port Cassandra is on is clear.
I'll have a go at connecting via fluentcassandra next and see what that does...
Thanks in advance!
