Remote Access

Connecting with ROSbot over the internet

You can access the robot not only in LAN but also over the Internet. The connection is based on Husarnet VPN.

Connecting your ROSbot


Brand new ROSbots may have the operating system image with Husarnet already connected to TheConstructSim platform. If you want to connect the robot to your own computer instead, remove the content of /var/lib/husarnet:

sudo rm -rf /var/lib/husarnet
sudo systemctl enable husarnet
sudo systemctl start husarnet
sudo husarnet join PASTE_YOUR_JOIN_CODE_HERE rosbot

Connecting your laptop

Install Husarnet VPN client on your laptop (for Linux):

curl -s | sudo bash
sudo systemctl restart husarnet
sudo husarnet join PASTE_YOUR_JOIN_CODE_HERE mylaptop

If you have another OS on your computer, please find the supported options here.

Testing the connection

That's all - now you can access the robot over the Internet and use your ROSbot's hostname instead of IPv4 addr, eg.:

ssh husarion@rosbot2r

After that you should see:

ROSbot terminl
