> That's Ben's point - either it is actual Ethernet (usually found on an add-on UPS SNMP monitoring card, where the jack typically has two status LEDs, one on either side of the notch for the modular plug tab) that needs to go to another Ethernet jack on a NIC or a switch, or it is a proprietary APC cable that vaguely resembles an Ethernet cable on one end. (I was incorrect when I said 8P8C before - MGE uses 8P8C modular jacks for similar USB/serial proprietary cables.)

Correction to my correction: apparently APC uses both 8-pin and 10-pin modular jacks.

The SmartUPS C1000 has a 10-pin jack labeled serial (and the industry-standard USB Type B jack for USB, hooray), but for your models, a few images online seem to show an 8-pin jack labeled "data port" for the BackUPS Pro 1000 and BackUPS NS 1080.
