There is a rabbitmq running on docker on my ubuntu aws server, which I connect to from my local pc app. After setting up https domain on nginx, it broke up (I am not sure if it the reason).

I tried to connect via telnet ip port which shows Connection closed by foreign host. Docker logs after above command:

2020-10-02 17:20:57.873 [info] <0.546.0> Resetting node maintenance status
2020-10-02 17:31:23.071 [info] <0.1670.0> accepting AMQP connection <0.1670.0> ( -> private_ip:5672)
2020-10-02 17:31:23.071 [error] <0.1670.0> closing AMQP connection <0.1670.0> ( -> private_ip:5672):

Interestingly, the same error occurs when I connect to rabbit_management plugin via telnet. But, i am able to access rabbit_management from browser.

Aws bounding rules and ufw ports are open

When run my app (python and aio_pika lib for rabbitmq client) following error occurs:

Could not get addresses to use: [Errno -2] Name or service not known (http)

How to fix this?

P.S. I use elastic ip to connect to rabbit, not domain name. But it should work in any case.

The problem was regarding the protocol. In my case as I blocked out incoming http requests, the http://ip was invalid request url, which should be changed to ip without http protocol.
