NotMario i am really interested in having a GS talk to cerbo. I have ran several victron systems and like cerbo and vrm. I really like victrons bms and mppt with the cerbo / vrm monitoring the ability a GS inverter work with cerbo would be great. 

What do protocol should I get when ordering GS inverter, what else do i need?

@notmario built a software bridge via WiFi comms to the GS inverter; I don't have any Victron equipment, so I don't know what physical protocol a Victron system could utilize.  Have to wait for an answer from @notmario 😉.

Nothing special is needed with a Cerbo. It will communicate to the GS over ethernet/wifi.

This system can be quicky installed using kwindrem's "SetupHelper" mod:  https://github.com/kwindrem/SetupHelper
Need only add the "venus-gs" repo for user "iNotMario". Then you have to edit the "service/run" file to use the IP of your GS unit. (Or you can fork the "venus-gs" repo)

Be aware that your router should always give your GS the same IP address. (OR you can elect to use DNS when editing the service file described above)

At this point, i generally consider the module to be production functional - i've been running it continuously for many months now.

Here's the system running with GUIMods.

Also, the Node-Red system i've mentioned in another thread - keeps the battery ready for solar power.
