Connect to the RabbitMQ administration panel
In order to connect to the RabbitMQ management panel, you have two options:
- (Recommended): Access the RabbitMQ management panel through an SSH tunnel (refer to the FAQ for more information about SSH tunnels).
- Open the port 15672 for remote access (refer to the FAQ for more information about opening ports).
IMPORTANT: We strongly discourage opening ports to allow inbound connections to the server from a different network. Making the application’s network ports public is a significant security risk. The recommended way for connecting two instances deployed in different networks is by using VPC network peering. If you must make it accessible over a public IP address, we recommend restricting access to a trusted list of source IP addresses and ports using firewall rules. To do so, follow the instructions below.
Once you have an active SSH tunnel or you opened the port for remote access, you can then connect to RabbitMQ management panel by browsing to:
- Access through an SSH tunnel: http://127.0.0.1:SOURCE-PORT/
- Access opening ports: http://SERVER-IP:15672/
