[rabbitmq-discuss] RabbitMQ subscriber loses connection across firewalls after long idle

It's probably your firewall. Many firewalls have built-in idle timers. Your
clients are likely in a consuming loop where there are no messages, and
hence the idle timer kicks in and kills your connections.

Some options:

   - You can try getting your Rabbit server and clients to utilize TCP
   - Setup libkeepalive on your server
   - Use AMQP heartbeats (probably the best option) to keep packets flowing.
