In the current version of wipilib (v2023.1.1-beta-7) the startClient() methods on NetworkTableInstance that allowed one to specify the server address and/or port appear to have gone missing. There is now a startClient3() and a startClient4() method, both of which accept a string argument mysteriously called “identity”. I tried looking at the source on Github here:
but oddly it seems that the networktableinstance.java file has also gone missing. Looking back through the tags, it appears to have disappeared as of v2023.1.1-alpha-1.
Does anyone know what the intent was? The startClient(address) method was useful when you were testing with a network tables server that was not on the robot.
