Not directly, but I suppose they should be aware of NUT, since that's
what they direct users to seeking Unix/Linux support. I didn't ask them
lately, although I'm fairly certain that someone did in the past few years.

If they really mean open source, we could probably use that. But seeing
is believing here. It wouldn't be the first vendor that mistakes
'available for free' with 'open source'. And neither would it be the
first that would be shamelessly claiming they support NUT, without
providing any actual help.

I don't know. Ask them for a protocol specification and permission to
post it here.

Best regards, Arjen
