Noob needs help

Evening all. I have a little issue I hope someone can help with, its probably something simple I have over looked. I am looking to set up my first show and I want to use xlights with FPP on a RP4 and a Falcon f16V4. I have set up a static IP for both the WLAN and Eth on my RP and everything talks fine, I can run test via the FPP and the Falcon software and the lights all display fine however I cant test via Xligghts and I can't output to my pixels either. When I try to output I get an error message say an error occurred opening output 1(). All seems to work as it should when I select FPP connect in Xlights. I've watched numerous videos and read various articles and can't seem to fix it.
Xlights is version 2022.11, FPP is v5.5 and Falcon Controller is Build 19.

Thanks in advance

We are going to need a whole lot more information than this to help you.  What are the IP addresses for the PI's two interfaces and the F16.  Are any of them on your home network?  Are you trying to test directly from xlights and if so, how have you configured its outputs and is the PC running xlights on the same network and the F16.  Please post some screen shots of the F16's input and string output configurations as well as the Xlights output configuration.

Thanks for the reply, I think its the inputs and outputs that I haven't set up properly as I am fairly sure the IP config is all correct. RP is connected to my home network via wifi, eth on RP is on its own network x.x.1.x as opposed to x.x.0.x, Falcon is connected to the RP via eth, all on static IP's, Everything pings as it should.
Is there a guide to configuring the IP/OP in xlights, FPP and Falcon because I think that might be easier than Videos at this point, universes make my head hurt.

if you used FPP Connect, then your outputs should be configured correctly. But how about screenshots of those so we can help you out?

Why not give us the information so that we know for sure? We can only help with the information we have

Since you are bridging networks, how are you creating the routing?
Are you using E1.31/DDP?

How about a screenshot of that error and the application giving that error?
Did you configure the controller in xLights for Auto Size, Auto Layout and Full xLights Control?
Did you upload the controller config?

A screenshot of your controller config would help as well.

You do not need to even know what a Universe is anymore, so you must be looking at some old videos

Just FPP https://falconchristmas.github.io/FPP_Manual(5.5).pdf
If to err is human, I am more human than most people.
