minicom or screen should work - after you configure the serial port settings,
they will show everything sent by the UPS, and you can enter the "f" command in
For initial setup, you can run "minicom -s" and it takes you right to the
configuration screen. You will probably want to clear out some of the modem
init strings if they are present - the UPS will likely not understand them.
