I'm not sure if it's related to this one, but I have a similar problem.

The problem is unless I have port 27017 opened, Robomongo fails to connect even with "ssh tunnel" option.


Port, address and public key are correct, I'm using the same credentials to connect through ssh.

Here's the part of my iptables INPUT chain:

pkts      bytes target     prot opt in     out     source               destination
  2044   191475 ACCEPT     tcp  --  any    any     anywhere             anywhere             tcp dpt:6666 state NEW,ESTABLISHED
    54     6356 ACCEPT     all  --  any    any     anywhere             anywhere             state RELATED,ESTABLISHED
   163    15426 DROP       all  --  any    any     anywhere             anywhere

OUTPUT and FORWARD chains are empty

Looking at the traffic in wireshark I see that Robomongo doesn't try to connect to 27017, it connects to 6666 (as it should), but still fails.

What am I missing here?


Perhaps you are using a version of mongodb that is not supported by Robomongo. See this answer about Robomongo not supporting Version 3.0 of mongodb yet.
