2012-06-22 10:04:53 -0500 asked a question Win_ros fuerte broadcasting messages to linux machine

Hi,

I just installed win_ros fuerte. I have been running electric on windows without any problems. A linux box acts as the Master and the windows machine broadcasts messages to the linux box. However, with win_ros fuerte I am unable to get my messages across to the linux box. Win_ros will run fine with the ROS_MASTER_URI set to the ip address of the linux machine. Also, when I start broadcasting messages from windows I can see the message name when I type "rostopic list" on both the windows and the linux sides. However, I can only echo the messages on the windows side. It seems like there is enough connectivity between the machines to see that a message started, but not enough to actually pass the data. The same thing happens when windows is the "master". Ros_wtf just gives an unknown network error.

I realize this is a vague question -- I'm mainly interested in knowing if anyone has successfully talked between windows and linux with win_ros fuerte.

Thanks! Mark
