Hi,

I have followed the instruction to intall the Raspbian, run the setup.py. And set up the kit.

However, by the time I put the power on and tried to debug the servos. None of the servos were moving. So I manually debugged the servo.

Now I have finished assembling tank and tried to turn the machine on and connect to it via the Client script provided. It only tells me that the host in not reachable. However, I can ssh to the Raspberry Pi and execute command.

Is there anything I have missed? Or I just received a malfunction kit?

Thanks!

I'm having the same problem. I sent an email to support. I feel for some reason the program is not booting up.

It's the same issue as the picar-b that i purchased. Both Rasptank and picar-b use the same setup.py source code on github as far as i can see. See my post below.

Is the script running on the pi?  Try to connect to the robot with Putty and run server.py manually to see if that helps.

Please manually run server.py to check if there's any error.

How do you manually run server.py?  
I am having a similar problem.  I've gone through all the steps, installed all the software.  On the PC, I had no idea where to find client.py, did a whole C: drive search, found 2 files.  When I double click them, nothing happens.  I can SSH into the RPi tank via Putty, I see the adeept_rasptank folder there.  At this point I am completely stuck.

OK, if I SSH into the RPi and navigate to the adeept_rasptank/server folder, then execute "sudo python3 server.py", the screen just scrolls the IP address of the RPi (ie, "192.xxx.xxx.xxx").  If I start over and instead execute "sudo python3 serverTest.py", I get the following:

Loading...
Setting up server...
192.xxx.xxx.xxx
waiting for connection...

If I then run the only client.py file I found on the PC after going through all the software installation steps, absolutely nothing happens.
