I must have done something to my system about three weeks ago because I can no longer get any of my WeMos devices, with ESPEasy installed, to connect to a MQTT broker running on a Pi.
the broker is fine since NR on a Pi can use it to talk to my Mac or other Pi's
A WeMos with an arduino sketch can use it to talk to my Mac or other Pi's
But that same WeMos flashed with ESPEasy won't connect giving
12723098: MQTT : Intentional reconnect
12723430: MQTT : Failed to connect to broker
However, that same WeMos can connect and use an external broker (BeeBotte in this case).
I remembered flashing my Airport router with new firmware, so I reflashed it and rebooted - no change
I removed the Airport router and replaced it with a brand new TP-Link AC1750 router - no change
Any ideas on what I can look for to resolve this - AND I'm sure it is gong to be something simple and stupid, but I haven't been able to figure it out. Thanks in advance.
