I want to send the position data of six optitrack cameras to Ros, I use vrpn_client_ros package, in motive I have the vrpn broadcast frame an ip ( and a port (3883). I have turn off the window Firewell.

Then when I run the launch file (roslaunch vrpn_client_ros sample.launch server: = "") the following message appears:

Roslaunch vrpn_client_ros sample.launch server: = ""
... logging to /home/mario1577/.ros/log/f640a4d4-29f1-11e7-a77e-c85b7638df65/roslaunch-MarioPC-10141.log

The problem is when I want to put the list of topics does not appear the Publish Topic: <tracker name=""> / pose

Why can't I receive the position data?

Do I have to do a configuration on my pc ubuntu? (I am noob in ubuntu)

In my lab I have six optitrack cameras, two pc (WINDOWS and Ubuntu) and a iris drone.

The two PCs is connect with ethernet cable. My main goal is to send the position data of the cameras to the pixhawk of the iris.
