mangOH Red to AWS IoT / REST API / MQTT Broker


#1

Hi All,

Are there any success stories with AWS IoT or any third party MQTT broker? Please share how was it accomplished.

Regards

A while back I spent a bit of time trying to make the use_paho_linux_version branch of the mangOH MQTT client work with AWS IoT, but I never managed to get client certificates to work properly. Client certificates are supported by the underlying paho MQTT client, so it should be possible.

Thanks for the response.

So, will this library work with mosquitto broker without certs? (for some initial testing).

Was it tried with certs on any other mqtt broker other than AWS IOT gateway?


#4

I expect it to work without certs or with server-side only certs.


#5

That’s encouraging. I will be getting into this part, as soon as my mangOH Red’s WiFi issues are resolved.


#6

As the WiFi issues resolved now, I would like to move forward to build a couple applications on the mangOH.

  1. HTTP REST API consumer (no security in development & testing purposes)
    2, MQTT client with Mosquitto broker (no security)
  2. AWS IOT gateway (mqtt) for an alpha test.

Requesting any suggestions & successful examples on these use cases.

Thanks
Madan
