Golang sent data to MQTT

Published on 17.01.2022

MQTT is a lightweight, publish-subscribe network protocol that transports messages between devices. Golang has a very nice client which can be easily used for the purpose.

For example here is how to send data to my public free MQTT Broker - xMQTT

package main

import (
	mqtt ""

func main(){
	var broker = ""
	var port = 8883

	opts := mqtt.NewClientOptions()
	opts.AddBroker(fmt.Sprintf("tcps://%s:%d", broker, port))
	opts.OnConnect = func(client mqtt.Client) {
	client := mqtt.NewClient(opts)
	if token := client.Connect(); token.Wait() && token.Error() != nil {

	for i := 0; i < 100; i++ {
		t := client.Publish("/random/test",0,false,fmt.Sprintf("event_id %d",i))

	log.Println("Events sent")

HaProxy ACL by source IP adress

Published on 22.08.2018

Haproxy is an awesome load balancer for TCP and HTTP connections. In this short post we will see how to secure bind by source IP address Configuration of HaProxy to allow and reject connections by IP Address: For doing this we will use ACL to check source IP and based on it we will decide how to proceed.
In my use case I want to publish RabbitMQ management interface to few public users. It will be served through different from 80/443 port. So my config looks like:

listen port_5672
  bind :15672
  mode tcp
  acl network_allowed src
  tcp-request connection reject if !network_allowed
  server rmq_rmq1_1 check
Note: RabbitMQ management interface is running on port 25672
So as you can see I’m adding new listener on port 15672 which backend will be Interesting part here is ACL conditions
acl network_allowed src
tcp-request connection reject if !network_allowed
It’s a pretty straightforward and self-explanatory. Of course this can be used in frontend section as well.
For example:
frontend www
  bind *:80
  mode tcp
  acl network_allowed src
  tcp-request connection reject if !network_allowed
  use_backend backend_server_original

Happy codding!
