How to find serialnumber without Bluetooth

Hi, I have configured SBFspot and SBFuploader and I would like to upload to PVoutput. But in the file SBFspotUpload.cfg I need to enter the serial number of the inverter. My SMA device does not have bluetooth enabled, so running "SBFspot -v -finq" does not work.

Where can I find the correct number? I think this is the last step... thanks for your help!

Please read the comments in SBFspot.cfg
You should comment out BTAddress and uncomment IP_Address
#BTAddress=00:00:00:00:00:00

IP_Address=0.0.0.0
If SBFspot doesn't find your inverter, you have to enter the IP Address in the config
