[rabbitmq-discuss] TCP vs. SSL configuration

I'm new to RabbitMQ, and am a bit confused by some of the documentation 
surrounding TCP vs. SSL configuration.

I'm trying to set up a broker for which only authenticated SSL-based 
connections will be allowed, so I do not want the TCP listener running.  
That seems easy to do for rabbitmq-env.conf, but the documentation<http://www.rabbitmq.com/configure.html>seems to indicate that RABBITMQ_NODE_PORT is a required property (or at 
least, it seems to be required if you're setting up clustering on a single 
machine <http://www.rabbitmq.com/clustering.html#single-machine>, which I'm 
not doing yet but want the option to do in the future) and that if it's not 
provided, a default will be used.

Is it possible to configure an SSL-only broker (just one node on a single 
machine), and if so, what if anything do you set RABBITMQ_NODE_PORT to?  
(Just "RABBITMQ_NODE_PORT=" ?)  And (separate question) is it possible to 
configure a single-machine cluster with multiple nodes, where each node is 
SSL-only, and again, what do you set RABBITMQ_NODE_PORT to for each node?

Thanks for the help...
