Hi @kommanaboina.varun,

For security reasons, RockMongo is accessible only when using 127.0.0.1 as the hostname. To access it from a remote system, you must create an SSH tunnel that routes requests to the Apache Web server from 127.0.0.1. This implies that you must be able to connect to your server over SSH in order to access these applications remotely. More information about this here:

https://docs.bitnami.com/virtual-machine/infrastructure/mean/get-started/access-rockmongo/

You will need to enable the SSH server first

Happy to help!
