How to connect to the default WebSocket network

Reviewed on 19 June 2023Published on 01 September 2019

A default WebSocket network is automatically created with each Hub. Similarly to the default network, it cannot be deleted.

Security & Identity (IAM):

You may need certain IAM permissions to carry out some actions described on this page. This means:

  • you are the Owner of the Scaleway Organization in which the actions will be carried out, or
  • you are an IAM user of the Organization, with a policy granting you the necessary permission sets
  1. Add a Hub device if you haven’t already done so.

    As the WebSocket network does not implement Mutual TLS authentication, choose to Allow Insecure connections.

  2. Configure the physical device (or client) to connect through the network, using the following parameters:

    • Host: The network endpoint.
    • Port: Use 80 for plaintext or 443 for TLS.
    • MQTT Username: The Device ID from the device you created earlier.
    • If your client asks for a password, just pass in an empty string.

    Mutual TLS authentication is not available on this network, which means that devices that connect over this network must Allow Insecure connections.

  3. Connect and exchange messages.
