Hi John,

Did you try Matthias' suggestions out? Are you still struggling with this? It'd be good to get you past these hurdles since I know you've been trying to get this to work for quite some time now.

> - you say that the shovel is running on rabbit1 and shovelling to rabbit2. That means it would be better to use a direct connection to rabbit1 instead of a network connection. From http://www.rabbitmq.com/shovel.html#configuration "If the [URI] host is omitted [...] the shovel uses a direct connection to the broker in which it is running. This avoids using the network stack.". In addition to better performance, direct connections are not affected by network issues, which should make it easier to debug the problem you are seeing.
