Thus, Clever is accessible on machines that support mDNS as
clever-xxxx.local. You can use this name to access Clever over SSH:
Also, this name can be used in place of IP-address to open Clever web pages in browser, accessing ROS master, etc.
In some situations it is necessary to change Clever's hostname. You can use the
hostnamectl utility for that:
sudo hostnamectl set-hostname newname
newname is the new name of the machine.
hostnamectl utility will change the name in
You should also put the new name to
127.0.1.1 newname newname.local
newname.local is necessary to allow ROS to resolve this name in situations where all the network interfaces are down (when Wi-Fi is turned off or disconnected).
Changing the hostname does not affect the Wi-Fi SSID (and vice versa, changing the Wi-Fi SSID won't affect the hostname).
