Not able to use vSPoT API's

I'm not able to connect to vSPoT api's using mqtt broker. 

vSPoT instance IP -
mqtt broker IP -,
venue_id - vspot
password - 12345678

below is my mosquitto-bridge config file:
pid_file /tmp/mqtt_bridge.pidautosave_interval 0
autosave_on_changes false
persistence true
persistence_file mqtt_bridge.db
persistence_location /tmp/
log_dest file /tmp/mqtt_bridge.log
log_type debug
# listener for MQTT messages without PSK
listener 1883
connection spot_push_api_mqtt_bridge
topic "1.0.0/LOC/SPOT_GPB/vspot/GPB_LOCR" in
bridge_tls_version tlsv1
bridge_identity vspot
bridge_psk 12345678

I've used the following command to start the local mosquitto broker:
mosquitto -c mosquitto_bridge.conf

After this I locally subscribe to the mqtt-bridged TLS PSK connection to venue server using the mosquitto_sub utility:
mosquitto_sub -h -p 1883 -t "1.0.0/LOC/SPOT_GPB/vspot/GPB_LOCR"

I was expecting some encoded message streaming on my stdout. Unfortunately this is not happening. 

Help would be appreciated. Thanks!

PS: I'm using the instructions from -

Hi, my log_dest entry reads:
log_dest stdout

You also want to make sure that your password is in HEX format, you can convert this from ASCII here ->

Maybe that will help?
