In "Setting up Dynamic Reconfigure for a Node (Python") tutorial, on line 14 of, "anonymous = True" should be removed so that the client in the next tutorial can find this server node to communicate.

I encountered this problem while going through the tutorial. I am just a beginner so if I make any mistake, feel free to correct me. Thanks!

I had a similar issue and removing "anonymous = True" resolved the issue. Should this be an expected outcome?

I think the communication between dynamic_reconfigure client and server does not depend on node name (in fact I don't know any communication on ROS network that does that. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong). In the same page you see an example of reconfigure GUI, which runs on a ROS node and is already able to find the server node you just defined in the same page. So anonymous is valid.
