So... apsupsd is configured with :
# defines the type of cable that you have.
# UPSTYPE [ backups | sharebasic | netups |
# backupspro | smartvsups |
# newbackupspro | backupspropnp |
# smartups | matrixups | sharesmart ]
# defines the type of UPS you have.
# name of your serial port
And when I launch it, I get the following :
bash-3.2# apcupsd -d 10 -b
0.000 apcupsd: apcupsd.c:211 Options parsed.
0.000 apcupsd: apcupsd.c:234 Config file
0.000 apcupsd: apcupsd.c:253 Attached to driver: dumb
0.002 apcupsd: apcupsd.c:355 Netmaster thread started.
0.003 apcupsd: apcnet.c:922 Master/slave network code disabled. Use
--enable-master-slave to enable.
So... seems that something is wrong. It is compiled with the default
options... and has :
# UPSCLASS [ standalone | shareslave | sharemaster | netslave | netmaster ]
# normally standalone unless you share a UPS with multiple machines.
# Unless you want to share the UPS (power multiple machines).
# this should be
# UPSMODE [ disable | share | net | sharenet ]
#NETACCESS <string> [ true | false ] Enable Network Access Support
