Hi Gavin,

We tried it with logging turned on in pika but could not see any errors
created. When we start the application it seems to connect for maybe a few
seconds but dies right after that.

These are the options we are using:

#! /usr/bin/env python
import ssl
from QO.RabbitMQ.SpecialPublisher import SpecialPubliser

###Some other code


publ = SpecialPubliser()
publ.host = 'IM02'
publ.port = 5671
publ.ssl = True
publ.ssl_options = ({
                                #'cert_reqs': ssl.CERT_REQUIRED
                                "verify": "verify_peer",
                                "fail_if_no_peer_cert": True
publ.username = 'guest'
publ.password = 'guest'
publ.exchange = 'test'
publ.queue = 'test'
publ.messagesNum = 10
publ.message = message

We have the keys created and RabbitMQ running with SSL enabled. Does it work
on your end? What else might be the issue?

Let me know.
