Hi All,

I am a new user to rabbitmq. I got the rabbitmq server pkg installed on 
my ubuntu, Hardy system. I started the server, and after some tweaking 
to the erlang path(-pa) value it started the server correctly. When 
installing the rabbitmq-server pkg via apt-get or even dpkg it installs 
the utilities in /usr/sbin/, but the rabbitmq* scripts expect to be able 
to see the 'ebin' directory at '../ebin'.

My server is running:

> /usr/local/lib/erlang/erts-5.6.3/bin/beam.smp -W w -K true -A30 -- 
> -root /usr/local/lib/erlang -progname erl -- -home /home/build -pa 
> ./../ebin -noshell -noinput -s rabbit -sname rabbit -boot start_sasl 
> -kernel inet_default_listen_options [{sndbuf,16384},{recbuf,4096}] 
> -rabbit tcp_listeners [{"", 5672}] -sasl errlog_type error 
> -kernel error_logger {file,"/var/log/rabbitmq/rabbit.log"} -sasl 
> sasl_error_logger {file,"/var/log/rabbitmq/rabbit-sasl.log"} -os_mon 
> start_cpu_sup true -os_mon start_disksup false -os_mon start_memsup 
> false -os_mon start_os_sup false -mnesia dir 
> "/var/lib/rabbitmq/mnesia/rabbit" start

netstat -a shows:

tcp        0      0 *:5672                  *:*                     

However, when I try to see the status, etc.. of this using rabbitmqctl, 
I always get:

> rabbitmqctl status
> Status of node rabbit at re ...
> {badrpc,nodedown}
> done.

> rabbitmqctl start_app
> Starting node rabbit at re ...
> rabbit_control action start_app failed:
> {badrpc,nodedown}

My log file says this:

=INFO REPORT==== 15-Sep-2008::18:41:48 ===
started TCP listener on

=ERROR REPORT==== 15-Sep-2008::18:42:36 ===
** Connection attempt from disallowed node rabbitmqctl27468 at re **

=ERROR REPORT==== 15-Sep-2008::18:42:50 ===
** Connection attempt from disallowed node rabbitmqctl27495 at re **

Why would this connection be disallowed?
