I am trying to setup a workstation for Baxter to simulate Baxter in Gazebo. I am using this tutorial: https://sdk.rethinkrobotics.com/wiki/Workstation_Setup, but I am stuck on this step:

Edit the 'baxter_hostname' field Baxter's hostname is defaulted as the robot's serial number. The serial number can be located on the back of the robot, next to the power button. Alternatively, you can find your robot's hostname by plugging a USB keyboard into the back of Baxter and pressing Ctrl+Alt+F3.

# Specify Baxter's hostname baxter_hostname="baxter_hostname.local"

Since I am not working with a real Baxter robot, I am not sure what to put as the baxter_hostname.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you!
