Connection to Victron MQTT - Node Red

I've read many threads but still cannot connect to Victron's MQTT server. I know I should be using mqtt62.victronenergy.com and have everything set as I understand it, including the venus-ca.crt but it fails to connect. Any help would be appreciated. pageb.pngpagec.png

Wrong port. Should be 8883. I can connect now with MQTT.fx but node red connects then immediately disconnects. Also not getting any data from topics. # just returns my portal ID.

Hi and sorry to hear your were also having trouble with this.

By chance have you resolved this? I am wanting to do the same but I am finding the online documentation a little confusing. So if you could offer any help that would really be appreciated.


Best Regards
Jonathan
