You choose the port using ssl_listeners (see Plugin Configuration on
http://www.rabbitmq.com/mqtt.html, and specify the port you want
instead of an empty list).

MQTT with SSL port is typically 8883 (this is mentioned in our docs)
but it can be any port you want.
It is *not* common to use MQTT with SSL on port 1883, unless you must
disable non-SSL connections entirely. 

You can verify SSL connectivity using openssl s_client or an MQTT
client that makes it easy to configure SSL. See
