Test simple-skill.py : Connection refused error


I’m trying to the MQTT Brocker from an my Windows PC with the simple-skill.py code provided in the Rhasspy tutorial (Tutorials - Rhasspy).

I run Rhasspy on one device with MQTT external configuration with localhost and port 1883.
On the same device, I run mosquitto on port 1883.

Successful connection between Rhasspy and the MQTT brocker :

On my PC, I launch the simple-skill.py modifying just the host in the client.connect() function.

I receive the following error and don’t know how to resolve it :

Traceback (most recent call last):

Try using the IP address of the machine running that docker container.

I don’t use Docker, it’s the IP address of the machine.
The thing is that mosquitto didn’t listen outwards, begginer error… :sweat_smile: Just have to add the “bind address” parameter in the mosquitto conf.
