You need an Ethernet cable between the UR5 and your computer. The following tutorial is useful to set up a static IP connection:
useful setup instructions: https://github.com/qian256/ur5_setup
You need to first boot up the UR5 using the Teach Pendant, calibrate it, and get into the Networking menu. Then set the IP numbers. For example, these should work:
- For the computer, IP = 172.22.22.1
- For the robot, IP=172.22.22.2, netmask = 255.255.255.0, gateway & dns = 0.0.0.0
- Hit 'Apply settings', don't hit 'Update' or it erases..
- Trom Linux terminal
ping 172.22.22.1and you should get a response. (Control C to kill).
