Usually when these types of errors are because you're not connecting to the
proper host:port. Double check your configs, make sure everything is
running and listening on the host:port you think they are.

Have you tried using the sync producer to work out your bugs? My guess is
the sync producer would fail on the first message rather than failing when
the batch is submitted.
