Peter is retired from the project for excellent reason.
if you need support, use the Network UPS Tools mailing list. we will
be happy to help.
as Peter told, we don't work for APC (not at all, and proud!!). we are
friendly and won't pull your teeth ;-)
checking the below thread, your request is hard to understand.
you should dig a bit the upsc, upscmd, upsrw command, or look at NUT
clients like KNutClient:
for further assistance, please post the following back to **** the
cc'edd mailing list ****
- exact unit name and port (serial / usb)
- OS name and release
- nut release, and source (package / vanilla)
- output of upsc, upscmd, upsrw
- description of the problem.
