netflow from Cisco 2811 not arriving at destination?

As you can see below - exported flows count is incrementing.  But in my Solar Winds netflow collector "Last Received Netflow" is saying "Never".  The incrementing counter should mean that the router is properly trying to send the netflow info - right?

c2811-1#sho ip flow export
Flow export v5 is enabled for main cache
  Export source and destination details :
  VRF ID : Default
    Source(1)       10.10.5.1 (GigabitEthernet1/0.1)
    Destination(1)  10.10.1.15 (2055)
  Version 5 flow records
  123940560 flows exported in 5169293 udp datagrams
  0 flows failed due to lack of export packet
  0 export packets were sent up to process level
  0 export packets were dropped due to no fib
  0 export packets were dropped due to adjacency issues
  0 export packets were dropped due to fragmentation failures
  0 export packets were dropped due to encapsulation fixup failures

This is the destination, but it is not on the same broadcast domain.

Are you able to confirm ip connectivity end to end (ICMP, traceroute, etc).
Is the network in the routing table?
How is the routing tables end to end?
Are there any filters in the path that might be dropping UDP packets?
Have you ran wireshark of some sort on the Solarwinds host to see if the packets are even arriving?

If I ping from the source interface for netflow I can ping the collector - yes.  That's a good thought to look at wireshark on solar winds.  I think it's on there actually.

Well the cflow data is definitely not getting there - confirmed via wireshark.  Thanks for the reminder.
