I am currently learning about how the underlying communication of ROS1 is working. I found this great ROS Wiki articale that covers this topic. One thing that i noticed is that in the service connection section of this article only ROSTCP is mentioned. I want to make sure that I understand correctly:

Does that mean that services can't use ROSUDP at all and are always using ROSTCP?

Afaik and IIRC: yes, services only use the TCPROS transport.
