## About
This application demonstrates the usage of the emCute (MQTT-SN) module in RIOT.
## Setup
For using this example, two prerequisites have to be fullfilled:
1. You need a running MQTT broker that supports MQTT-SN or a running MQTT-SN
gateway that is connected to a running MQTT broker
2. Your RIOT node needs to be able to speak to that broker/gateway
### Setting up a broker
In general, any MQTT-SN capable broker or broker/gateway setup will do.
Following a quick instruction on how-to setup the Mosquitto Real Simple Message
1. Get the RSMB here:
git clone
2. Go into the source folder and build the RSMB
cd mosquitto.rsmb/rsmb/src
3. Create a config file. In this case we run the RSMB as MQTT and MQTT-SN
capable broker, using port 1885 for MQTT-SN and 1886 for MQTT and enabling
IPv6, so save the following to `config.conf`:
# add some debug output
trace_output protocol
# listen for MQTT-SN traffic on UDP port 1885
listener 1885 INADDR_ANY mqtts
ipv6 true
# listen to MQTT connections on tcp port 1886
listener 1886 INADDR_ANY
ipv6 true
4. Start the broker:
./broker_mqtts config.conf
You can refer to for more
configuration options.
### Setting up RIOT `native`
When running this example under native, we must configure some global addresses,
as the RSMB doesn't seems to be able to handle link-local addresses. So for a
single RIOT native instance, we can do the following:
1. Setup `tap` and `tabbr` devices using RIOT's `tapsetup` script:
2. Assign a site-global prefix to the `tabbr0` interface (the name could be
different on OSX etc):
sudo ip a a fec0:affe::1/64 dev tapbr0
3. Assign a site-global address with the same prefix to the RIOT `native`
ifconfig 5 add fec0:affe::99
## Usage
This example maps all available MQTT-SN functions to shell commands. Simply type
`help` to see the available commands. The most important steps are explained
- To connect to a broker, use the `con` command:
con fec0:affe::1 1885
- To subscribe to a topic, run `sub` with the topic name as parameter, e.g.
sub hello/world
- For publishing, use the `pub` command:
pub hello/world "One more beer, please."
That's it, happy publishing!
