[Nut-upsdev] newhidups / Solaris 10 / APC RM1500

Hi there,

been using NUT for ages and recently upgraded to a new server; while  
I'm waiting
for a USB->Serial adapter for Solaris to arrive, I thought I'd play  
with the
newhidups, as the APC UPS I have has a USB port and the new server  
doesn't have
a serial port....

I've got Solaris 10 & newhidups working with the ugen driver up to a  
and that is a read overrun while probing the UPS itself. It seems  
this has been
spotted before and there was a post back in February about problems  
reading UPS
information from an APC UPS.

Is there any progress on this issue ?

I had to make some simple updates to get newhidups to compile on  
Solaris; is
anyone interested in getting these rolled into NUT and for a text  
document on
how to configure nut/newhidups/Solaris 10 ?

Many regards
