Re: [mosquitto-dev] MQTT client id length

Hi Terry,

It is 65535 bytes. This is the same as the limit in mqtt v3.1.1.

According to MQTT V3.1 Protocol Specification, "The Client Identifier (Client ID) is between 1 and 23 characters long, and uniquely identifies the client to the server. It must be unique across all clients connecting to a single server, and is the key in handling Message IDs messages with QoS levels 1 and 2. If the Client ID contains more than 23 characters, the server responds to the CONNECT message with a CONNACK return code 2: Identifier Rejected."

But I have noticed that Mosquitto is OK with client identifiers longer than 23 characters.  What is mosquitto's maximum client id length?
