This is a guide that shows how to install Monta on your charge point. If you want to connect your charge point to your Monta account, please follow the steps in the end of the guide.
Please note that when you connect your charge point to Monta, we become the operator of the charge point. This means that you need to use Monta to control the charging process.
Important: if the charge point was connected to the internet using DHCP, you will need to factory reset the charge point by pressing and holding a reset button which is located close to the LAN port in the side opening of the charge point.
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.
2. Select "Change adapter options"
Select "Change adapter options", located in the Advanced networks settings.
3. Right-click on "Ethernet adapter" and select "Properties"
Once you enter the "Change adapter options", find the Ethernet adapter, right-click on it, and select "Properties".

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

On the right side, put a check mark on DHCP and DNS in the IPv4 section.
Click on "Save".
