Hi all, I have a Hokuyo ust 10LX LRF, which use ethernet RJ45 connector, rather than USB.

Sequence listed below:

Step 1. Use 10LX's default setting , as LiDAR IP address.

Step 2. Set network.

$ sudo vi /etc/network/interfaces

auto lo

iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0

allow-hotplug eth0

iface eth0 inet static



Step 3. Power on LiDAR with 12V@1000mA power supply,

Step 4. Plug RJ45 connector into PC's ethernet port.

Step 5. However get errors saying 'Destination Host Unreachable'.

$ ping

64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.032 ms

64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=0.037 ms ...

ping PC okay, but fail to LiDAR:

$ ping

PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.

From icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable

From icmp_seq=2 Destination Host Unreachable

From icmp_seq=3 Destination Host Unreachable ...

Thanks very much for your help!

Check the output of ip route and make sure that there is a route going to the block using eth0.
