Ok, so what's happened in the world of Oz?
I have installed and started the
sudo systemctl start mosquitto.service
pi@PIFACE:/etc/mosquitto $ sudo systemctl start mosquitto.service
pi@PIFACE:/etc/mosquitto $ sudo systemctl status mosquitto.service
● mosquitto.service - LSB: mosquitto MQTT v3.1 message broker
Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/mosquitto)
Active: active (running) since Mon 2020-11-30 16:29:00 AEDT; 15h ago
Process: 414 ExecStart=/etc/init.d/mosquitto start (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
└─429 /usr/sbin/mosquitto -c /etc/mosquitto/mosquitto.conf
Nov 30 16:28:59 PIFACE systemd: Starting LSB: mosquitto MQTT v3.1 message broker...

Dec 01 07:38:08 PIFACE systemd: Started LSB: mosquitto MQTT v3.1 message broker.
I then edited the MQTT broker node in NR and pointed it to 127.0.0.1 and deployed.
This is my mqtt.config file for that machine:
# Place your local configuration in /etc/mosquitto/conf.d/
# A full description of the configuration file is at
log_dest file /var/log/mosquitto/mosquitto.log
#log_dest topic /var/log/mosquitto/mosquitto.log
# 2020 12 1 Bridge mode for MQTT
topic # out 0
topic # in 0
Of course the 0 and o are rather difficult to tell the difference on the link.
So is that 0 or o at the end of the topic line/s?
