I am completely new to this. I have recently received my first F16V3 ready to run controller. I have watched all of canaspater Christmas videos and a number of Keiths videos and other peoples videos. Where I live internet is hard to get but not impossible. We rely on our mobile devices for internet. My wife and I create a mobile hotspot and have unlimited data. To make a long story short I created a mobile hotspot hooked my controller up and can not connect. It say that I have the wrong IP address. It says my IP address is 172.20.10.2 but there is 12 digits on the controller. So would I put in 172.020.010.002 or would I put 172.200.100.200. Has anyone ever used a mobile hotspot to set up the controller. So far I havent got mad because I knew that this was going to be part of the game when I got into this. A huge learning curve!!! Ive even played around xlights and got to know it before my controller came in. Now I just need to get to know how to work the controller.

In anything IP related, leading zeros are there to pad when a device requires it.  So, it would be 172.020.010.xxx.
Sequencers: Vixen3 and xLights
Players: FPP and xSchedule Controllers:  Renards - SS24/SS16; E1.31 - San Devices E682 - Falcon F16, F4, F48 - J1Sys - DIYLEDExpress E1.31 Bridges.  Much more!
