I am working on Ubuntu 14.04 (NOT a virtual machine), and I am having trouble connection with my VLP-16.

In Wireshark, I can see that data is being sent along eth0 (ethernet 0). I have configured the ethernet port to the following:

Address - Netmask - Gateway - `

When I open a terminal I type:

sudo ifconfig eth0

because the IP address the VLP-16 is sending fron is (as seen in Wireshark)

Afterward in the terminal I write:

sudo route add eth0

as stated in the VLP velodyne manual, online. So, in Wireshark I'm able to see that packets are coming, however in rviz I'm unable to see them and I'm also not able to open the webserver for my VLP-16. Thus, I assume I am having some sort of configuration problem.

Easiest would be to configure either:

  1. your VLP to have an IP in the range (so it's in the same network as your PC), or
  2. give eth0 an IP in the range (as that's what your VLP is in)

All other options will need careful configuration of your network stack.
