I am ussing the LMS1XX package on Kinetic , and I couldn't get it connected.

rosrun lms1xx LMS1xx_node _host:=[ip from Sopas Engineering Toolbox from Sick]


rosrun lms1xx LMS1xx_node _host:=

Connecting to laser at
Unable to connect, retrying.

I set the Mac Adress, IPv4, Netmask like here


sudo ifconfig

No laser found from find_sick node and I couldn't get the set_sick_ip to work because I don't know the arguments format.

IP shows on sick software ... LMS111-10100 Fw V1.80.1

Nothing works.. Any help?

The IP address that you saw in the SICK software is not a valid ip address,

Change the IP address to something that is valid like with the SOPAS Engineering Toolbox.

I'm not sure this is entirely correct. IPs in the range 169.254.x.x are in the APIPA or link local range. They're certainly valid IP addresses. They may change next tim the device is started though, so configuring a static IP address may be a good idea.
