Hi, I am trying to use the velodyne drivers in ROS indigo on my Ubuntu VM running inside Virtualbox. I followed the instructions from here . Unfortunately, even after using the vlp16_points.launch and the vlp16 calibration file, I am unable to see the pointcloud in rviz. I get the fixed frame velodyne not found error in rviz. After digging google for a while I decided to use Wireshark to check if I receive the packets. I could not see the UDP packets in Wireshark (launched as superuser) in my Ubuntu VM. But, when I tried doing the same with Windows, I was able to see the UDP packets. In my Ubuntu VM, I could only see TCP and HTTP under IPV4 unlike UDP in Windows. Is it because of the network config in VM? Do I need to change some settings in it?

I have no experience with network configuration for a virtual machine, but from the fact that Windows sees the packets and Ubuntu does not, the problem is almost certainly some kind of Virtualbox issue.
