Re: [paho-dev] Client Publications rejected / QoS error

Hi Mike,

the QoS is a parameter to the serialize publish call:

  * Serializes the supplied publish data into the supplied buffer, ready for sending
  * @param buf the buffer into which the packet will be serialized
  * @param buflen the length in bytes of the supplied buffer
  * @param dup integer - the MQTT dup flag
  * @param qos integer - the MQTT QoS value
  * @param retained integer - the MQTT retained flag
  * @param packetid integer - the MQTT packet identifier
  * @param topicName MQTTString - the MQTT topic in the publish
  * @param payload byte buffer - the MQTT publish payload
  * @param payloadlen integer - the length of the MQTT payload
  * @return the length of the serialized data.  <= 0 indicates error
int MQTTSerialize_publish(unsigned char* buf, int buflen, unsigned char dup, int qos, unsigned char retained, unsigned short packetid,
                MQTTString topicName, unsigned char* payload, int payloadlen)

You've set it to 3, which is not valid in MQTT - only 0, 1 or 2 are.

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to implement a MQTT-client based on the embedded variant of Paho. This is what my code looks like (pseudocode of the relevant parts):

   struct mqtt_inst_data   *instData;
   MQTTPacket_connectData   data="">
   MQTTString               topic=MQTTString_initializer;

   -> open TCP/IP connection here

   len = MQTTSerialize_connect(buf,MAX_BUFLEN,&data); /* 1 */



   len+=MQTTSerialize_publish(buf+len,MAX_BUFLEN-len,0,3,0,0,topic,(unsigned char*)payload,payloadlen); /* 2 */
   len+=MQTTSerialize_disconnect(buf+len,MAX_BUFLEN-len); /* 3 */

   -> send data "buf" with length "len" here
   -> close TCP/IP connection

After doing this Mosquitto debug output comes with following error messages:

1538382438: New connection from on port 1883.
1538382446: New client connected from as C85B76DF5FF6 (c1, k60).
1538382446: No will message specified.
1538382446: Sending CONNACK to C85B76DF5FF6 (0, 0)
1538382446: Invalid QoS in PUBLISH from C85B76DF5FF6, disconnecting.
1538382446: Socket error on client C85B76DF5FF6, disconnecting.

Where/how do I have to set this QoS stuff exactly? MQTTPacket_connectData has a sub-structure MQTTPacket_willOptions which itself contains a member "qos" - but what do I have to do with this structure exactly? Or is this error caused by some other problem?
