Fix: Unable to connect to RabbitMQ server from remote clients

Problem : When connected from a remote client, this error is thrown (at client) – An unexpected connection driver error occured (Exception message: Socket closed)

Reason : As per default settings, the default user (“guest”) can access only from localhost (or Loop back IP).

Fix: Remove “guest” user from “loopback_users”. This is how –

sudo vi /etc/rabbitmq/rabbitmq.config # create new file if in Ubuntu
[{rabbit, [{loopback_users, []}]}].   # Add this line, save and quit vim.

sudo rabbit-server restart # this mostly fails. So we grep & kill in next steps.

ps auxx|grep rabbitmq # gives multiple processes

kill -9 3099 3288 3289 10263 # process-Ids are place holders

sudo rabbitmq-server start

Should be able to connect from remote clients now.
