MQTT connect failed, error 5


#1

I have download arduino code for my ESP8266. Code loads fine but getting error connecting to MQTT server.

I have tried several times making sure mqtt passcode and ID are fine along with several device IDs.

I have also tried connecting with MQTT.fx and also get a Not authorized to connect.

Do my userid and password need to be re-issued or activated?

Looking for ideas, Thanks!


#2

can you post the code you are using.


#3

Code is good, I just created a new user ID and got new MQTT credentials and it works fine.

Problem is that the other projects I have are on the original ID.

Is there a way to issue new MQTT credentials, mine seems to be locked out?


#4

new Credentials for same id is not possible. but on your dashboard you can get your MQTT credentials by clicking on gear icon on right side > configure.


#5

@rlust you can also add a new device if you need another set of mqtt credentials.
