Access the server using the hostname
iot.eclipse.org and port
1883. You can also access the server using encrypted port
The encrypted port support TLS v1.2, v1.1 or v1.0 with x509 certificates and requires client support to connect.

Some live statistics are available via Xively and an HTTP bridge with a list of topics is deployed at http://eclipse.mqttbridge.com. This server is running the Open Source Mosquitto broker in its most recently released version.
A CoAP server exposing test resources is available at:
coap://californium.eclipse.org:5683/, and DTLS-enabled version at
It should be used by anyone interested in testing a CoAP client implementation against another endpoint, and more generally by anyone interested in understanding the key concepts of the CoAP protocol.

Lightweight M2M (LWM2M)
In order to test LWM2M communication scenarios, we host a LWM2M server.
You can make use of this server with the Wakaama project
The LWM2M server is available at:
coap://leshan.eclipse.org:5683 (both IPv4 and IPv6 are available)
A web interface allows to interact with registered LWM2M clients:
This server is running the Open Source Eclipse Leshan server.
