Remote connection to Hadoop namenode issue

view story

http://serverfault.com – I am required to hack a single node hadoop "cluster" (cloudera psuedo-distributed) to be able to access it remotely. I have successfully installed hadoop and I have updated the localhost identifiers in the configs to the IP address of the machine. I can run hadoop fs -ls / and all is good. I have created a passphraseless key and I can ssh to the hadoop machine. The connection is established with: ssh -vvvv -i .ssh/hadoop_rsa -o ConnectTimeout=10 -o ServerAliveInterval=60 -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no -o UserKnownHostsFile=/dev/null-N -D 6666 [email protected] When I run hadoop fs -l (HowTos)
