Ruby on Rails with RabbitMQ, is possible to have different ips for connections or channels or anything else?

Currently, I am in the process of transitioning from Sidekiq to RabbitMQ due to encountering an issue. We have four distinct jobs, and each job requires a specific IP address for execution. I'm exploring the possibility of incorporating a VPN in the future. However, I'm uncertain if it's feasible to utilize different IPs within the same instance of RabbitMQ, given that I'm running RabbitMQ within a Docker container.

The rationale behind this migration is that within my system, I need to access my API with varying IP addresses. For instance:

var express = require('express');
var app = express();

app.get('/', function (req, res) {
  res.send(`Your IP: ${req.ip}`);

app.listen(3020, '', function () {
  console.log('Example app listening on port 3020!');
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Think i already create the messages and now have four channels. When the message is sent to the consumer, within the consumer's logic, I make an API call in Node.js using the appropriate IP based on the channel.
