Dear ROS Community,

How can we setUp turtlesim to support UDPROS topics/services? I'd like to test my ROS Client UDPROS implementation on ROS Subscriber Topics, and Services, and do not know what to configure to achieve this.

To prefer UDPROS use Transport Hints

Unfortunately, preferring UDPROS does not make UDPROS work for me on Turtlesim. I've already made the preference, and UDPROS is not starting on ROS side. It stays TCPROS. Did you test this and verify it turns on UDPROS in turtlesim when you set the TransportHint via the ROS Client? I am assuming TransportHints is the same as using the ROS Master/Slave API to call requestTopic(caller_id, topic, protocols), where protocols are the ordering of the preferred protocols?
