In this release we have updated our configuration to make it possible for RabbitMQ to be accessed via the hypernode-vpn. Earlier this week we mentioned that to access the RabbitMQ admin interface you could tunnel the tcp port over SSH, but now it is also possible to connect to it through the VPN similar to how you can securely access the MySQL database from your local computer.

Because the VPN connection to the admin interface does not run via localhost the default login for guest/guest will not work (because that is a loopback user). When you connect to the traffic will come from the tun0 adaptor on the instance instead.

For this we have created an additional admin user named hypernode_admin for which the password can be found in /data/web/.rabbitmq_password after activating RabbitMQ.
