Control of a RobotiQ 3f gripper with Gazebo

I would like to control the RobotiQ 3f gripper in simulation with Gazebo. I am using the robotiq package provided by ROS Industrial. I suppose that I have to launch the 3 Python nodes available in robotiq_3f_gripper_control, but the node requires as argument the IP adress of the gripper. Thus, does the control in simulation require the connection of a real physical gripper to the computer? As I don't have one, is there an alternative to be able to move the gripper in Gazebo?

Quick comment: simulated grippers do not use the real driver.
