You are absolutely right, that post focuses on *nix systems, and I have no idea how 
applicable it might be to Windows environments. Any chance you can switch to Linux? :)

I can't explain how these 2 can be true at the same time though:
1) you have rabbit running as a service and you can connect to it
2) rabbit node does not show up in net_adm:names() which would mean rabbit is not running

Is there anything in the rabbit log (such as this "connection attempt from disallowed 
node" [1])?
