Further to my email last Thursday I now have my Compaq T700h more-or-less working
with NUT on FreeBSD 5.4. Many thanks to Kjell Claesson for suggesting the upscode2
driver rather than BCMXCP.
works with no errors using this ups.conf:
- it takes about 20 seconds.
driver = upscode2
port = /dev/cuaa0
desc = "Compaq T700h"
manufacturer = "Compaq"
input_timeout = 5
use_pre_lf = yes
I said it more-or-less worked...
Network UPS Tools upsd 2.1.0
Connected to UPS [compaq]: compaq
Synchronizing........ giving up
Initially I got occasional comments in /var/log/messages about stale data (about 1/hour)
but setting MAXAGE 30 in upsd.conf seems to have fixed that.
However the MAXAGE change didn´t make any difference to the "Synchronizing" problem
- is the synchronization with slave systems (I don´t have any) or with the UPS driver?
Although upsd apparently is not synchronized, upsmon starts, although it
logs the message Poll UPS [compaq at localhost] failed - Variable not
supported by UPS.
Suggestions welcome for these nits but essentially the system seems
