HI there,

 

I have been trying to connect to the Carriots Mqtt broker within a web browser for the development of a hybrid mobile app. The package I am using is 'ng2-mqtt'. This package only supports WebSocket connections, and this is the error I get when I try connecting to the Carriots broker:

WebSocket connection to 'ws://mqttbroker.carriots.com:1883/mqtt' failed: Error during WebSocket handshake: net::ERR_CONNECTION_RESET

I tried running the same code to connect to the HiveMQ public broker, and this was successful. Am I having trouble with Carriots because the Mqtt broker does not support WebSocket connections? If not, what would be causing this error? From what I have gathered, the standard way of using Mqtt with a web browser is over WebSockets.

 

Here is my code for the connection in Angular 2:

 

import {Paho} from 'ng2-mqtt/mqttws31';

export class MqttPage{

  _client: any;

  options = {
    timeout: 3,
    onSuccess: this.onConnected,
    onFailure: this.onFailure,
    userName: '....',
    password: '....'
  };


  constructor() {
    this._client = new Paho.MQTT.Client('mqttbroker.carriots.com', 1883, "devId");
    this._client.onConnectionLost = this.onConnectionLost;
    this._client.connect(this.options);

  }

 onConnected() {
    console.log("connected");
    this._client.subscribe("TatendaRPI@polymorph.tatenda/raspberrycontrol", {});
  }

}

 

Any help would be highly appreciated. Thanks!

Hi merashid
 
To use MQTT over Websocket in the Carriots broker (mqttbroker.carriots com) you have to use the ports 1884 or 8884.
 
Hope it helps!
