• Not really related to mysensors but many are using MQTT so the question goes like this.
    Currently moving from UBUNTU 14 server to the latest RASPBIAN on raspberry. The gateway is the MQTT client ESP12
    Installed mosquitto, mosquitto-clients and mosquitto python (both)

    Running tcommand on ubuntu

    $ mosquitto_sub -v -t 'mygateway1-out/#'

    gives me output from mysensors


    $ mosquitto_sub -v -t 'mygateway1-out/#'

    on raspbian gives me silence

    Mosquitto is up and running and i can see it on the sockets

    And yes i have a loopback in interfaces.

    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback

    Any help will be appreciated

  • In the logs i notice

    1465234765: New connection from ::1 on port 1883.
    1465234765: New client connected from ::1 as mosqsub/1701-homepi (c1, k60).
    1465234774: Socket error on client mosqsub/1701-homepi, disconnecting.
    1465234789: mosquitto version 1.3.4 terminating

    @moskovskiy82 Maybe different Mosquitto versions?
    Caused me headaches in the past...

  • Touche... Will try to install a new one. Wonder if it is worth going MQTT path after this...

    @moskovskiy82 Did you try google'ing for the error?
    When I do, I get e.g.
    Maybe that helps?

  • I tried. But i don't have any username/password
    Strange thing is that this is a fresh raspbian install (downloaded yesterday)

    pid_file /var/run/
    persistence true
    persistence_location /var/lib/mosquitto/
    log_dest file /var/log/mosquitto/mosquitto.log
    include_dir /etc/mosquitto/conf.d

  • I had some issues as well and read somewhere that there was an issue with the mosquitto packages for raspberri, so I installed from git.

    sudo apt-key add mosquitto-repo.gpg.key
    cd /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

    for wheezy: sudo wget
    for jessie: sudo wget

    apt-get update
    apt-get install mosquitto
    sudo /etc/init.d/mosquitto start

    All working flawless for months now.

  • This i what i did above to solve the old version problem
    Installed from

    With no luck.
    Turning debug i see the following only

    1465240376: mosquitto version 1.4.8 terminating

    1465240419: Socket error on client mosqsub/1948-homepi, disconnecting.

    Not that much of a help...

  • What is also strange i tried to start mosquitto with
    sudo mosquitto -c /etc/mosquitto/mosquitto.conf -v

    Than on the second console i tried
    mosquitto_sub -v -t 'mygateway1-out/#'
    and also
    mosquitto -c /etc/mosquitto/mosquitto.conf -v

    Strange thing is that id didn't see any messages in cosole. In the log file

    @moskovskiy82 can you subscribe and publish something on the pc? Then do the same on the rpi. At least that should work...
