Writing Flash ROM via I210

Hello.

I use I210 Ethernet controller to design the circuit.
So I210 uses Flash.
I have received software (EEUPDATE, LANConf) from the distributor for writing ROM to Flash of I210.

At this time, is it possible to write ROM to Flash while it is still mounted on the circuit via I210?
If possible, I would like to check the required connection interfaces and procedures for each of the following.
PC---CPU---I210---Flash

Any assistance appreciated.

Hello.@CarlosAM_INTEL 


Thank you for your reply.
I checked the contents.

I checked it.

I have looked at the contents, but I understand that there are many contents after the connection, and the expected hardware connection conditions are not described.
If it is possible to write ROM to Flash via I210, I think the following connection is necessary, but is there an example of a circuit diagram that makes these connections?

PC---CPU---I210---Flash

Thank you for your confirmation.
