Configure one reader to be unicast and the rest to multicast

Hi,

At the moment we are publishing a topic to multiple readers using multicast which works fine. We're now introducing a new reader, however it can't use multicast due to network topology.

Is it possible to configure the reader to be unicast, while leave the others as multicast?

Thank you,

Fidel

Hi Fidel,

Using Unicast for user data is the default behavior. I assume you are configuring the QoS for all those readers to use Multicast (<multicast> in <datareader_qos>).

The only thing you have to do is NOT to apply that QoS configuration to the Unicast reader. 

Thanks,
