Voxl not connecting to QGC

  • Hello,

    I have gone through the quickstart process and can ssh into my voxl m500 drone, but it does not automatically connect to QCG. I installed qcg using the instructions here for Linux. I am on Ubuntu 20.04. My desktop has two ethernet ports and a wifi card. I tried following the steps in this forum post, but it does not appear to be helping.

    I tried running with the default voxl-vision-px4 and I tried setting up a new one with voxl-configure-vision-px4. I've tried with my ethernet connection both enabled and disabled. In the forum post I linked above, the solution was to input the ethernet ip into the voxl-vision-px4 config, but this does not make sense to me as the connection is happening over wifi. However, I tried with both the ethernet and the wifi ip's of my desktop. In all cases I reset the system with systemctl restart voxl-vision-px4 and have also tried power cycling my desktop.

    Desktop Wifi IP
    VOXL with WIFI IP
    Desktop ethernet IP

    I have also checked the QCG debugging steps here, and do not have any of the connection messages in the QCG console log, however I am able to connect from my computer to the drone over ssh and wifi.

    Please let me know if there is any other information that can be useful for debugging.

    Hi @PawelJ

    Can you try power cycling your drone and then providing the output of systemctl status -l voxl-vision-px4
