Hi @ATO, and a warm welcome to the HiveMQ Community! We’re excited that you’re interested in MQTT and the HiveMQ broker. Your presence adds value to our community.

No need to apologize – we’re here to help! While we don’t have a step-by-step guide designed for “little babies,” we can certainly provide assistance. To better assist you, could you provide more details on the MQTT client you’re using within your Splunk instance? Any documentation or a screenshot would be helpful.

Additionally, could you confirm if the HiveMQ broker is indeed running on your Raspberry Pi, or if it’s a different MQTT broker? It’s essential to ensure compatibility.

Lastly, have you tried connecting with any other MQTT clients successfully? For instance, MQTT.fx or MQTT-CLI? This information will help us narrow down the issue and guide you more effectively.

Looking forward to your response!

Best regards,
Dasha from HiveMQ Team
