The key point was the the VM hosting the broker must be able to accept
connections. NAT won't work. The VM(s) hosting the RPC scripts can use NAT.

I don't think the following question appeared on the mailing list:

There may well be tutorials for setting up networking on your choice of
hypervisor, but this is not a RabbitMQ-specific topic.

"RPC Server" and "broker" are not the same thing. The RPC client and RPC
server communicate with the help of the broker. The tutorial requires
only one instance of the RPC server script to be running.
