broker_auto discovery

Andy Piper edited this page Dec 2, 2013 · 1 revision

Possible solutions to clients auto-discovering a broker:

The following sequence might be reasonable:

  • Use user supplied values for server name or ip number

  • Use a server name or ip number received as DHCP option (how can we apply for an official DHCP option assignment for MQTT? A: Application instructions at the end of RFC 2132. List of all current DHCP Options. Recommend Option 7 (Logging Server).

  • Zeroconf to find the mqtt server

  • Try mqtt.<localdomain> as server name

  • Try using the ip address of the DHCP server

  • Use a vendor supplied server name

Some steps may be skipped if not supported by the particular client.
