Hello, I am trying to simulate the ABB driver by running a simulation of the ABB robot on RobotStudio. The plan to do this is to run RobotStudio on one PC, and then connect another PC to the first one via ethernet and run the ROS nodes on the second PC. I have tried looking for ways to do this, but I am not sure how to set up the configurations on the RobotStudio end of things. May I know how it may be possible to connect the simulated Robot Controller in RobotStudio to the second PC via ethernet? The "second PC" mentioned is running ROS Noetic on a Linux OS (Ubuntu 20.04 distro).

Which driver will you be using?

Have you found any other Q&As here on ROS Answers about this topic?

I will be using the older version of the ABB driver. I have found Q&As related to this topic but none that provide insight into how to manage on the RobotStudio end of things

The installation and setup tutorials for abb_driver have a tutorial dedicated to setting up the virtual robot controller: abb_driver/Tutorials/RobotStudio: Using Simulated Robot in Robot Studio.

In essence, a few tweaks are necessary, but after that it would be exactly like how you'd run things with a real robot and IRC5.
