Well, there are lots of config options and documentation for the nut-ups
tools, but setting them up from pkgsrc tages hardly 5 minutes, and they
realy have nifty networking features (my UPSs have multiple computers
connected to it, only one has the serial cable).
Actually all I ended up doing (take this with a grain of salt, this may not
be realy up to date with what is in pkgsrc now) was adding these lines to
and filling in some real passwords and network names in
/usr/pkg/etc/nut/upsd.conf (after copying that from upsd.conf.sample).
