Hello again; Is there software for ups auto shutdown and restart for use with a ups system that has the capacity; I.E. a serial connection and references in the manual to software (for Windows mostly) download? Currently I have a Vesta Pro 600 unit. I had one made by Minuteman that crapped out on me last night. It had been doing ok and was a replacement for one made by Tripp Lite, which also failed permanently. I am running one desk top FreeBSD system, headless but with high speed SCSI drives in addition to the boot drive. I am away during the week for at least 8 - 9 hours during the week and cant be there if the power goes down to shut the system down before the ups exhausts its battery. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
Sounds like quite the varied selection of hardware. I am sure there are people here with experience in this area, but as a starter, look at: http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/ports.cgi?query=ups&stype=all&sektion=sysutils and perhaps: http://www.networkupstools.org/ -- -- _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
