@aravinth_chakravarthyr_173918 It isn't quite clear to me what outcome you're trying to achieve. But if you just want to connect from one node to another, you can simply use cqlsh.

For example, you can connect from one node to another node by specifying the IP address on the command line like this:

$ cqlsh <remote_node_ip>

For details, see the cqlsh startup options page. Cheers!

@Erick Ramirez If we have SSL encryption and authentication configured on that remote node . what other details should i need to provide with that cqlsh login

cqlsh ip:port -u username -p password along with the cqlshrc file with ssl details as mentioned in the below link. Am i correct . Please try to correct me if i am wrong
