Ve bus smart dongle issues with multiplus compact 12/1600

Since adding an lithium battery and installing the VE assistance, the smart dongle isn't switching the multiplus! I have the functionality on the app, but the actual multiplus isn't switching.

The only actual thing I have done is switch the dip switches as per the instructions, (DIP 1 on DIP 2 off) when adding the assistance. this was working perfect before with lead acid batteries, but I'm being told that because I now have a Victron lithium battery with a VE Bus, the dongle will now not work!! This doesn't seem right to me. help please?

Did you connect the smart dongle to the 'remote panel' side of the BMS's VE.bus connector?

No I left it connected within the multiplus, is that ok to do, as the smart dongle gets its own power supply!
