In order to configure the chargestation hardware settings, you need the following:
- With a web browser e.g. Chrome
- Configurable IP address

To connect directly to the chargestation
Please follow steps 1-4 as shown in the image from the Phihong manual above
- Step 1: Power on and wait for a green LED light
- Step 2: Expose the RJ45 Ethernet on the chargestation
