BlueROV2 Companion RPi flooding network logs


(Brad) #1

New dev here working with a companion computer running the latest BlueRobotics version. We have a large corporate network that I got the Raspberry Pi authorized to connect to, but just received a call from my network admin that the system is spewing data over 192.168.2.1 and 192.168.2.255. They kicked me off the network because its flooding the logs now :frowning:

I think this is caused by the MavLink constantly spitting out info over these IPs, but I’m not sure. I’ve tried killing the screen process that I thought was running the MavLink modem, but it still seems to be sending out packets.

Is there any way to easily disable whatever is spitting out this data so I can get this guy back on the network?

Any help is much appreciated!

There are two streams of data:

The mavlink telemetry is broadcast on the 192.168.2.x subnet on port 14550
The video stream is sent to 192.168.2.1 on port 5600

You can make the mavlink telemetry go to only 192.168.2.1 by changing the ip in the settings at http://192.168.2.2:2770/mavproxy. Or you can remove the --out line to disable the telemetry entirely.

You can disable the video by replacing the ! udpsink ... with ! fakesink at http://192.168.2.2:2770/camera.

There’s two problems:

  1. You will need to have the ROV on the network to change these settings
  2. The ROV isn’t much use without these data streams
