How to connect remote mongodb with pymongo


Question

When I use MongoChef to connect remote mongo database, I use next parameters:


Server

  • Server: localhost
  • Port: 27017

SSH Tunnel

  • SSH address: 10.1.0.90

  • Port: 25

  • SSH Username: username

  • SSH Password: password


When I connect with Pymongo, I have the next code:

import pymongo

MONGO_HOST = "10.1.0.90"
MONGO_PORT = 25
MONGO_DB = "db_name"
MONGO_USER = "username"
MONGO_PASS = "password"

con = pymongo.MongoClient(MONGO_HOST, MONGO_PORT)
db = con[MONGO_DB]
db.authenticate(MONGO_USER, MONGO_PASS)

print(db)

But I have the next error:

pymongo.errors.ServerSelectionTimeoutError: 10.1.2.84:27017: [Errno 111] Connection refused

Please, could you help me with this problem? What did I do wrong?

The solution which works for me.

from sshtunnel import SSHTunnelForwarder
import pymongo
import pprint

MONGO_HOST = "REMOTE_IP_ADDRESS"
MONGO_DB = "DATABASE_NAME"
MONGO_USER = "LOGIN"
MONGO_PASS = "PASSWORD"

server = SSHTunnelForwarder(
    MONGO_HOST,
    ssh_username=MONGO_USER,
    ssh_password=MONGO_PASS,
    remote_bind_address=('127.0.0.1', 27017)
)

server.start()

client = pymongo.MongoClient('127.0.0.1', server.local_bind_port) # server.local_bind_port is assigned local port
db = client[MONGO_DB]
pprint.pprint(db.collection_names())

server.stop()
