Is Installing OpticsRE on AXS port similar?

Installing new firmware on the AXS Port is different than the MATE3 as the AXS Port has no local interface for the user. Details on the difference of uploading firmware can be found at the link below (page2).

Hello David,

I have been able to update the firmware on the AXS itself but now wondering about installing OpticsRE. I'm guessing it is just downloaded on my computer but does it work with the AXS port and are there certain steps I must follow to access the inverter?

That same document, from Page 3 should give you details. Optics doesn't get "installed", per se, it's a cloud-based system accessed through your browser. If you haven't, you do need to set up an Optics account and "link" your AXS Port's mac address to it.
