Update Openevse Charge rate via mqtt

Hi, i have mqtt setup and working and i am able to feed solar, grid info etc and all those functions work.

I also pull charging session information via mqtt topics.

However, i am unable to figure out how to set some parameters remotely via mqtt.

for example, i would want to change the charge rate of openevse remotely via mqtt, is that possible? I looked through the documentation and can't figure out how to get it working. An example would help.

I cannot use the api etc since i do not have public IP's and am just relying on a public mqtt server to get openevse info into my home server.

Nevermind, I got it working, was testing with 2 different public brokers and didn't realize i was sending commands to the wrong broker.
