Sipelia™ Communications Management

By default, RabbitMQ uses port 5671 for SSL communication, and port 5672 for non-SSL communication. If you change the default port numbers used by Sipelia™, you must also change the port in the Message broker settings.

What you should know

During the Sipelia™ plugin installation procedure, there is an option to modify the SSL port. You can modify the RabbitMQ SSL port and the non-SSL port at any time using the following procedure.


  1. Update the RabbitMQ.config file.
    1. On the machine where Sipelia™ Server is installed, open File Explorer, and navigate to Computer\Local Disk (C:)\Program Files (x86)\Genetec\RabbitMQ.
    2. Open the RabbitMQ.config file in a text editor.
    3. To change the SSL port from the default (5671), modify the line: {ssl_listeners, [5671]}.
    4. To change the non-SSL port from the default (5672), modify the line: {tcp_listeners, [5672]}.
    5. Save and closed the RabbitMQ.config file.
  2. In the Services tab of the Windows Task Manager, restart the RabbitMQ service.
  3. Update the Message broker port in the Sipelia™ plugin to match the port in the RabbitMQ.config file.
    1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Plugins task.
    2. Click the Sipelia™ plugin.
    3. Click the General tab.
    4. In Message broker > Servers, select the RabbitMQ server for which you have modified the ports and click edit ().
    5. Modify the Port to match the port you configured in the RabbitMQ.config file, and click OK.
      NOTE: By default, Sipelia™ use the SSL connection to RabbitMQ, so the port entered here must be the SSL port you change in the RabbitMQ.config file in the previous steps. If you have disabled the Sipelia™ SSL connection, then you must enter the non-SSL port here.
    6. Click Apply.
    7. If you have modified the ports on more than one RabbitMQ server, and if those servers are listed here in Message broker configuration, then you must also edit the port for those servers.
