how do i talk with my pixlite 16mkii once it's been mounted in it's box? I'm using a rpi with fpp with a network switch (which hasn't arrived yet).

At the moment to access the pixlite im using the app/program(on mac) and my home internet router. Problem I is don't know exactly how many pixels to an output yet as I'm still toying with ideas and props but I'm keen to build my controller box. And testing props is a pain as I have to drag it all inside the house and the boss lady(mrs) does not approve haha

Is this going to be as easy as plugging my laptop into the network switch and matching the ip adress Or will I have to keep dragging it inside to edit the outputs?

FPP Proxy is probably the best, but you can also make FPP a basic router and put a static route on your PC to get to the "show network" that sits behind the FPP.
