If you hook up a terminal emulator to the comms port (1200 baud, 8/N/1 unless stickers and/or

Of course, I got Eaton Powerware's RS-232 cable for FE700VA/etc. but don't know 
what 'hook up a terminal emulator'... no Slackware GNU/Linux BASH command 'f,' 
or do I run (or install/compile) a certain program to enable/access that?
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 that 

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.

Minicom listed a blank modem init string, and 'f' did nothing.  I didn't see how to do anything similar in screen.
