rviz can not send goal to move_base from another computer [closed]

I am running a car-like robot. I have an move_base node with global/local planner, and I can send goal from rviz to move the car. Now, I want to run the rviz from another computer. Everything works fine, I can see the tf, laser scan etc in rviz. But when I sent the goal with "2D Nav Goal" in rviz from another computer, the car did not move. The car did not get the goal message either when I run "rostopic echo".

In addition to the suggestions below, make sure the robot can ping your computer by name. If it can't, you need to unset your ROS_HOSTNAME and set your ROS_IP instead.

Is this not a duplicate of #q298933?

You have to check the following:

  1. Is your ROS_MASTER_URI set properly?
  2. Do you use your world frame as fixed frame (usually "world")?
  3. Can you echo it on local computer?
