Dear ROS users,

I am developing the system that user input is done in windows, and ubuntu + ROS system controls a robot based on the user input.

What I need is only to read/write parameters on ubuntu ROS's parameter server.

Since I use diamondback, I have difficult to develop ROS node in Windows. (Several library is linked in the program in Windows, and I cannot compile a few ROS nodes in Electric. )

Is there any way I can connect to the parameter server from Windows?

Best Regards

Communication with the parameter server works through ordinary XMLRPC. Just use an XMLRPC library to communicate with the parameter server. The API is described here. A few basics including a Python example to communicate with the master are described here.
