Can you show me by simple example, is hostName in the following code supposed to be an IP address, or MYCOMPNAME from rabbit at MYCOMPNAME, or the entire string rabbit at MYCOMPNAME, or something else?

          ConnectionFactory factory = new ConnectionFactory();
          Connection connection = factory.newConnection();
          Channel channel = connection.createChannel();

By changing the RABBITMQ_NODE_PORT environmental variable, see
http://www.rabbitmq.com/configure.html .

It obviously doesn't (that would be an odd thing to do), I meant that rabbitmq
will receive all incoming connection and not just local one (in other words it
won't bind to the loopback interface only).
