I can control both RabbitMQ's service and the management interface via -

  {rabbit,          [ {tcp_listeners, [{'',5672}]}, ... ] },
  {rabbitmq_mochiweb, [ {listeners, [{mgmt, [{port, 55672},
                                             {ip, ""}]}]}]}

- but for epmd I can't find how to configure to only listen on a
specific interface / address.
