FTK 6.3+ fails to connect to the KFF/Cassandra.
- Confirm Cassandra is installed on the same machine as FTK
- Confirm the Cassandra service is started
- Confirm the RPC Port (typically 9160) and Native Transport Port (typically 9042) aren't blocked by a firewall
- Confirm the RPC Address for Cassandra is set to localhost
FTK is hard-coded to look for the KFF on "localhost". As such, Cassandra must be running on the same machine as FTK, with it's RPC Address set to "localhost".
