Can I set two ips for my system and robot? [closed]

asked 2017-02-15 19:14:17 -0500


I have an UR10, and my Ubuntu 14:04 ( got an aftershock laptop). I wonder can I set one ip for talking to the robot, and another ip for accessing the internet, or can I do it with one single IP. Also, will it be preferable to have DHCP or a static IP.

ps: using ros indigo, and iros for ur10.

This is off-topic for this forum, which is about ROS and questions related to that. We have over 30000 questions, so we try to keep things as on-topic as possible.

Because of that I'm going to close this question.

But to answer your question: yes, multiple IPs on one interface are perfectly possible under Linux. Even mixed setups like DHCP + fixed IPs are possible.

In your case you might just want to consider giving your robot an IP in the same IP range as your laptop. Then a single one should suffice.
