MQTT IPV6 on IoT Hub

Haris Papageorge 246 Reputation points


I am new to Azure and would like to connect my device to the IoT Hub using MQTT and IPV6 (my only option for now). As far as i know IPV6 is not yet supported in IoT Hub.

I have already successfully sent data with my device using MQTT (using the paho mqtt packet library) and IPV6 to different brokers.

How should i go about connecting my device to the IoT Hub?

    @NickWeliodro-9668 Welcome to Microsoft Q&A forum!
    Yes, your understanding is correct. IPv6 is currently not supported on IoT Hub.
    Also, note that IoT Hub is not a full-featured MQTT broker and does not support all the behaviors specified in the MQTT v3.1.1 standard.
    To know more about how devices can use supported MQTT behaviors to communicate with IoT Hub, please see how to Communicate with your IoT hub using the MQTT protocol.
