According to your prior post... you did a full install, and then restored your settings from backup.  This is not an upgrade, and you would have lost some settings in the process.  In order to help you get this working, we will need to know how your setup is configured.  Only explaining how they are plugged in is not very helpful.  There is a lot of math in the IPs you are leaving out. 

Possibly your old setup had IP forwarding enabled.  That setting does not restore from backup settings.

To use the FPPOS setting I believe that you must have every last 5.x update installed.  If you did not do all the updates then the upgrade will fail, but you can rerun the upgrade and that will most likely fix the issue.

PC: IP 10.0.0.70 Mask 255.255.255.0 GW 10.0.0.1     PC Wireless
Pi W0: IP 10.0.0.4 Mask 255.255.255.0 GW 10.0.0.1  Wireless Pi
Pi E0: IP 10.1.1.1 Mask 255.255.255.0 GW Blank       Connected to Falcon F16
Falcon F16: IP 10.1.1.4 Mask 255.255.255.0 GW 10.1.1.1 Connected to Pi E0
All is same from FPP 5.x
I did enter manually all the Pi network settings.
Saved screenshot from before is identical except there used to be a box called "enable routing between network interfaces" was checked before. This does not exist in FPP 6.0.
I have tried forwarding, and Masquerading / NAT with no sucess.

Under FPP Settings\ UI
Select Advanced.

You cannot view this attachment.

When viewing network settings in advanced mode, you will see a box named "IP Forwarding" and select forwarding.  Not sure if you need to reboot after that, but I would anyway.

IP Forwarding is the new name for interface routing.  (They are basically the same thing)  If you already have IP forwarding turned on, then it is most likely a routing issue from your PC.  Your persistent route looks good though, not to mention the FPP fresh install would not typically impact the PC route table.

Well, after much messing around, I can now access the tree. Forwarding was the key.

As far as the issue of uploading sequences: A couple of my sequences were in the Gigabyte range. Those all fail. Found it was due to a matrix I was testing, expanded the sequence size with no effects assigned. I deleted it and was able to reduce sequence size and now they upload fine.     This may be an issue for matrix users.

Most things work fine without testing with lights. But I cannot see all the remotes from the master via the multisync page. Just shows the pi I am looking at. Am I missing something here?

I do appreciate the help. Thanks for your time.

Glad you are making progress! 

Assuming the multisync page shown is from FPP 10.0.0.4.  It lists hostname 10.0.0.2.  I assumed your home network was 10.0.0.x.  Isn't the controller network using the 10.1.1.x network?  I would have guessed all of your display equipment was located on the Pi ethernet 10.1.1.x network.

Can you list the IPs/Subnetmasks/gateways of the devices you can't connect to?  I don't use Multisync and can't help you with those issues, but can make sure your IP addressing is good.

That is true, but there is also the Masquerading/Nat option that will allow 3 way communication and is usually the better option!

That has been fixed, I am not sure on which version.

What was the size of the matrix? What version fseq are you saving it as? 1G fseq is unusual unless it is an extremely long song and a huge show (over a million pixels)

You have some filters set at the top. Delete all of the text in all of the boxes displayed (Hostname address, etc.)

Must be V6.1.1. I have not made that jump yet.

It is a 4 x 4 panel matrix, so 16 total panels. It is working, but wont be complete this year for deployment. Possibly I had skipped up to 100,000 on the channel assignments as I am outlining the house and did'nt want to keep moving it till the house was done. Once I deleted the matrix model, my sequences are in the 200meg ranges.

I guess I did'nt realize those were filters.

Really appreciate all the quick responses, looks like everything is working now. You guys are great!

No worries... glad it is working!
