Server without public IP or behind firewall
If your server is behind a firewall or you cannot open any ports other than the standard http/https ports, the MQTT broker node can be accessible by public clients through a WebSocket path.
When your Node-RED server address is
https://yourserver/, you can set the WebSocket to bind to, e.g.,
"/ws/mqtt" path, to have
wss://yourserver/ws/mqtt WebSocket at port
You can also bind the WebSocket to the root
"/" path and having
wss://yourserver/ WebSocket listening at port
ws://yourserver/ at port
