McGateway check
« on: November 02, 2017, 08:13:32 am »
Hi

Is there anyway to check if the mcGateway is okay and it's connecting out? All the lights indicate it should be working. i can ping it okay. It's on a wired network.

I can see it in mcStudio also.

However, I can't get my mcmodules (110) to send to my mosquitto mqtt server - which is up and running. Or out to IFTT either.

Thanks

If the connection light is on, it means your gateway has gotten an IP address and is connected to the network.

I don't believe there is mechanism to check IFTTT messages as they are just HTTP requests made to an IFTTT endpoint.

As for MQTT, you could run your mosquitto server in a verbose mode and see if the gateway establishes a connection with it or not. You should see the gateway connect as a client as long as it can find the broker successfully. Another things to try would be to use a MQTT client such as MQTT.fx to make sure your broker is indeed healthy.
