MQTT and EtherMega / EtherTen

Post by ilium007 » Sat Jun 16, 2012 10:50 am

Hi guys - I am wondering if anyone knows if the EtherMega or EtherTen boards are compatible with the Arduino MQTT library ? I have seen on the site http://knolleary.net/arduino-client-for-mqtt/ that the Arduino brand ethernet boards are supported. I want to go and buy one tomorrow at Jaycar but need MQTT support. Cheers.

There should be no problem in essence with the MQTT library working on the EtherTen or EtherMega boards.

AFAIK Jon Oxer (one of the FreeTronics guys) is using MQTT as part of his home automation project. He may however not be using this library, so might be worth waiting on a reply from him on what he uses, or checking out the SuperHouseTV forum.

I purchased an EtherTen which should be at home when I get back tonight. Will give the MQTT library a go.
