AMQP Protocol Capture/Analysis Tool
Thanks for all your help and  for your quick responses.  I really appreciate it.  I ran the AMQP Tracer as per the instructions below and Tracer is running as:

C:\downloads\complete-rabbitmq-bundle-1.2.0\librabbitmq-java-1.2.0>runjava com.r
Usage: Tracer [<listenport> [<connecthost> [<connectport>]]]
Invoked as: Tracer 5673 localhost 5672

My RabbitMQ is running on my localhost using the default 5672 port.  

Now, I don't have the source code to the Tracer so I don't know what its suppose to do.  Does it log messages to log file when I run my application or should it show the log on the screen.  I have run it and it doesn't seem to be logging any interactions when I run my .net program.  

I used the following instructions to run it:

		  There's a very basic, very simple AMQP protocol analyzer in	  class com.rabbitmq.tools.Tracer. Invoke it with	
	runjava.sh com.rabbitmq.tools.Tracer listenPort connectHost connectPort	
listenPortport to listen for incoming AMQP connections on - defaults to 5673.connectHosthostname to use when making an outbound connection in response to an incoming connection - defaults to localhost.connectPortport number to use when making an outbound connection - defaults to 5672.
