Unable to contact my own server

Hello,

I have the following setup:

  • Ros indigo

  • -Laptop hosting a local wifi hotspot with IP 10.42.0.1. It is also connected to the internet via ethernet, but on a different network interface, so different (and unrelated IP).

  • -Youbot that has joined the created hotspot (These are the only two
    things in that network). IP 10.42.0.20
  • -SSH 'd into the Youbot on the mentioned Laptop.
  • The .bashrc on the laptop has the following lines in it:

    export ROS_IP=10.42.0.1
    export ROS_MASTER_URI=http://10.42.0.1:11311
    
  • The youbot sources the .bashrc on ssh login and it also contains

    export  ROS_IP=10.42.0.1 
    export  ROS_MASTER_URI=http://10.42.0.1:11311
    

What I can do:

  • ping in either direction (always using the IP, never the hostname)
  • Netcat in either direction
  • Start roscore on the Laptop

What I cannot do:

  • Start the youbot driver on the youbot. It always terminates with the "Unable to contact my own server at [ http://10.42.0.1:35449/]" message. I feel like I've looked at a lot of tutorials and don't see what's wrong, but there obviously is something wrong. Can anybody tell me what please?

export  ROS_IP=10.42.0.1

If this is not a typo, then that is your problem. You state that the youbot is at 10.42.0.20, but you set its ROS_IP to 10.42.0.1. That cannot work.

Thanks, I thought ROS_IP was also supposed to be the IP that hosts roscore, but now that you mention it that doesn't really make sense!
