Provided the MPPT is connected to your Venus, it will show up automatically on your MFD app.
You can try that remotely by connecting to your Venus through a web browser. Something like:
<local_IP_of_your_venus_device>/app

There should be a menu item in your Venus under System Setup, where you can configure devices with name and if they shall show up on your MFD (always provided your MFD supports the Victron App)
Should look like this:

Another good source is the NMEA 2000 & MFD integration guide
