Right, and I suspect (I could of course be wrong!) that it is not 
actually RabbitMQ your client is connecting to but a Qpid server (qpidd, 
which supports version 0-10 as identified by the rejected protocol 
header above).

Perhaps RabbitMQ was unable to listen on 5672 because it was already in 
use by Qpid (because the qpidd service is enabled by default on Centos). 
I'm not familiar enough with the management plugin to say for sure, but 
I suspect that is communicating with the RabbitMQ server over HTTP or 
some port other than 5672. You may see some errors in the RabbitMQ logs 

Try running /sbin/service qpidd status, if that shows something running, 
try /sbin/service qpidd stop and then restart RabbitMQ and try your 
client application again.
