Hi Gilles and netbsd folks ;)
Well I guess I am trying to do the smae than you are... Here is where I am =
at, trying to make my APC BackUPS RS 1000 to work with either apcupsd or up=
- apcupsd : detected fine, but got the error as well about the master/slave=
code disabled. A bit annoying as I will have another machine on the smae U=
PS. It seems also that this prevents the daemon to run. ps -aux | grep apcu=
psd returns nothing...
- ups-nut and ups-nut-usb : driver =3D newhidups -> which port to use ?
Did you make any progress on your side since then ?
Thanks a lot for your help,
