Recommended Posts

tried to install on the RED Brick via Brick Viewer > RED Brick > Programs.

After creating, receiving following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "brick-mqtt-proxy.py", line 1003, in <module>


  File "brick-mqtt-proxy.py", line 888, in connect

    self.client.connect(self.broker_host, self.broker_port)

  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/paho/mqtt/client.py", line 612, in connect

    return self.reconnect()

  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/paho/mqtt/client.py", line 734, in reconnect

    sock = socket.create_connection((self._host, self._port), source_address=(self._bind_address, 0))

  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/socket.py", line 571, in create_connection

    raise err

socket.error: [Errno 97] Address family not supported by protocol


The red brick configuration file (tfrba) is attached.


Any help appreciated.

Uploading it as a program like that is the correct way to go.


The error message is a bit misleading. The script tries to connect to an MQTT broker as localhost:1883 by default. If there is no such broker then you get that error message.


You need to install an MQTT broker on the RED Brick or tell the script to connect to another broker. You can install a broker with this command on the RED Brick:


sudo apt-get install mosquitto
