I have a couple of Slackware servers which I have plugged into some APC UPS's.  Each UPS has a network management card in it - one is the AP9617 and the other is the AP9606.

I want the servers to shut themselves down when the UPS's go into "low battery" mode.

What do I need to install?  I've read this thread

which implies I should install:

and that I need to configure ups.conf.  Will that work?

I must confess I'm a newbie as far as SNMP is concerned, though I've messed with Slackware a fair bit, and I've set up several Windows servers with APC's PowerChute Network Shutdown software.
