    Awesome guide. Finally managed to start RSMB as service with this post’s help. (I guess I was missing AppFolder part in the registry setup and double back-slashes). Thank you very much!

    hi there.
    maybe my question is abit out of topic.
    i start the broker manualy on windows server as a server. but when i can’t connect my mqtt client.

    when i try it in localhost. it work fine, but when i use amazon server. it didn’t work.

    do you know something about it?

    Alfa – I’d suggest this would be firewall related. Make sure your instance running on amazon’s servers are allowing through port 1883.
