Using ROS without internet on Jetson TX2

I am building an outdoor robot and I will not be having internet connectivity. I was able to start and run the robot with internet connectivity. I changed the configuration to work without internet connectivity. I am using a Jetson TX2, I will not be using ssh because of the lack of internet connectivity outdoors.

I first changed the ROS_MASTER_URI= (tegra-ubuntu) and changed the ROS_IP= I am able to ping my IP. I am able to successfully start up my roscore and see the rostopic list. However, I am unable to get my joystick to publish data when I try to do rostopic echo joy.

I have checked quite a few posts but I have not been able to find a solution to this problem.

"the internet" has nothing to do with this.

You write:

to which machine is this joystick connected? Can you sketch the network situation? Is this still a multi-host setup but without a gateway to the internet?

Thanks for getting back. I have resolved the issue myself. It is a single machine. The problem was that I was trying to use the Jetson's IP as the ROS_MASTER_URI and ROS_IP. I have been able to resolve it by switching it to the localhost URI and IP.

I'm confused: the values for ROS_IP and ROS_MASTER_URI you show in your question are already the localhost IP. But you claim that doesn't work. Now you write that by using the localhost IP, things actually work?
