Mac user configuration of Multiplus using MK3 USB

I've downloaded the Mac VictronConnect app on the Victron website, but it doesn't see my Multiplus, even while I'm connected using the MK3 USB. All other discussion here discusses using Wine or Parallels, yet there is a Mac app on the site for this purpose. Anyone have any luck using the app and seeing their device?


Thanks

Configuring a MultiPlus with VictronConnect + MK3 on a MAC (and Windows) is about to come very soon.

Expect this, to be working very shortly.

Is there a plan to use the VE.Bus Smart Dongle to configure the multiplus in the future? Also when is Very Shortly?

The VictronConnect app doesn't support VE.Bus devices - yet!
The only current option is VE.Configure which doesn't run natively on a Mac, hence the Wine / Parallels discussions.
