I'd encourage you to ask this question either to Hokuyo themselves, or a more appropriate forum, such as This site is for ROS related Q&A only, and with 40000+ questions we must keep it on-topic as much as possible.

Just for reference -- you can do this with ROS: see the script in urg_node package that I added years ago cause I hated using their windows software.

+1 to that. There are apparently some issues about that though on the urg_node tracker.

Just to clarify (as this seems to get more attention now): I'm not against answering this question here. The reason I closed it was because this is a typical example of a system/hw configuration issue that is not ROS-specific. We get quite a few questions like this, and they are always closed as ..

.. off-topic.

The fact that a Python script exists in a ROS pkg that happens to be able to do what the OP asks in this specific case is just a coincidence and convenience.
