Web interface

I can't access my web interface on the controller. I believe I have to change something in my internet options on the computer.  Anyone know what I need to change?

First - on the little OLED screen, what IP address shows on that screen?

Second - what is the IP address of your computer?

The first three "sets" of numbers must be the same and the last one must be different

i.e., 
controller - 192.168.0.15
computer - 192.168.0.87
(these are examples - not "required" values)

I think you're also referring to a routing table that needs changed. You can do it at the router or on your computer. I never remember the commands but it is in the pinned post at the top of the FPP threads.

That's needed if he is routing through an FPP to get to his controller on the other side. (fpp between home network and show network) If he replies to Jon's question we'll know.   But just for reference, the PC command is
     route add -p {ip-address-of-show-network} mask {subnet-mask-usually-255.255.255.0} {ip-address-of-fpp-on-home-network-usually-the-wlan0-address}
(the -p option makes it persistent across reboots.  Can be left off if you just want to add the route temporarily to test)

For example, with a home network of 192.168.1.x and a show network of 192.168.2.x and FPP ip address of 192.168.1.50, the command would be:
     route add -p 192.168.2.0 mask 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.50
-Mark
