Ros XMLPRC callback specification unclear

asked 2017-03-09 13:59:21 -0500

I'm working on a .net project that needs to integrate with ROS. I'm struggling to understand the XMLRPC specification. Specifically, I'm wondering what the ROS master expects in the "callback API" parameter.

I've tried several iterations of localhost,, and so forth, both including and excluding 'http://'. All requests have included port numbers.

What do I need to send ROS so it can find my callback server?

Do you really need to interact with the Master directly? Or are you just interested in data published by nodes and want to call services? If the latter, perhaps follesoe/rosbridge_client_dot_net is easier.

I don't know if I'll have access to ROS Bridge. Ideally, I should be able to work directly with the master with or without ROS bridge.

Then perhaps you could use Not sure how mature it is, but personally I'd always prefer to reuse something existing than to start from scratch. I know the author is very responsive.
