Hmm. amqp_connect isn't a function. You should be doing something like:

Conn = amqp_connection:start(#amqp_params_direct{ node = RemoteNode }),

The "broker_not_found_in_vm" is more interesting though as it suggests
that the connection is being made, but then rabbit isn't finding the
broker running, which is doubly odd if it then works via the network.

Are your versions of the erlang client and the server mismatched? If you
do, from the client node, an "rpc:call(RemoteNode, application,
which_applications, [])", do you get a list back including rabbit?
