Yes I am closing the connection correctly. I have verified this with a
counter up and down based on connect/disconnect calls.

Yes There are 4 hops on the traceroute between the client and server
according to our network guy. So it is failing on the WAN.

On local LAN between my machine and the server machine. all
are being closed successfully.

There are 4 hops between client and server machine in this case fails
to close connections.
Testing when client is on same LAN as server ( 1 hop )  closes
connections as expected.

In constant communications with the library author.

There must be some process not happening to close a connection at the
RabbitMQ server machine.
Something must be failing to get across the network. so the system is
failing to close it's connections.

Not being a network guy myself. I am simply guessing.
