Step 1: Change your network settings. Here, you need to change the network settings of your computer according to the charge point's local IP. To do so, click on the Internet icon in the bottom-right corner of your computer screen. From there, open the Network & Internet Settings of your device.

Step 2: Select Change adapter options, located in the Advanced network settings.

Step 3: Once you enter the Change adapter options, find the Ethernet adapter, right-click on it, and select Properties.

Step 4: In Ethernet Properties, find the Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/iPv4), click on it, and press Properties.

Step 5: Once you are there, select Use the following IP addresses, if not selected, and enter the values as follows:

  • IP address: 192.168.100.10.

  • Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0.

Step 6: After filling in the values, click on OK and close the window.

Step 7: Prepare the charge point for connection. These are the preparation steps you need to take before you can connect your charge point to E-Flux.

  1. Disconnect the charge point from the AC supply and wait 2 minutes before opening the covers!

  2. Open the T-series front cover and connect an Ethernet cable to the RJ45 connector.

  3. Power on T-series charge point.

  4. Connect the Ethernet cable’s other end to the PC.

Step 8: When the charge point is up and running, open a web browser on your PC and type in the address: https://192.168.100.200:8443

Please note that some web browsers probably show warnings about certificates. Firefox browser is used as an example here. You will see a similar screen. Click on Advanced... and click on Accept the Risk and Continue.

Step 9: Now the security key must be filled in. The key text file is delivered separately. Copy and paste the whole text file (including beginning and ending headers) to this dialog and click on the Login button.
