APC Back Ups 400 for pentium machine?

Post by Ramin Si » Tue, 24 Feb 1998 04:00:00


I was wondering if apcupsd will work with a Back Ups 400.  I have a pentium
running RH 4.2 (might istall RH 5.1 when it comes out). What I would like to
do is to leave the machine unattended and in the case of power failure, let
it run for 20 seconds before the software shuts down the system. Would the
battery be strong enough and would the software be capable of handling this?
Also, any official cable I can buy for this purpose?

Many thanks,
Ramin Sina


1. APC Back-UPS 400, updated howto for UPS?

I have the UPS howto which has all kinds of conflicting information on
the best way to wire the cable for automated shutdown with APC backups.
I looked around for an updated howto but the latest I can find is 2.42,
18 Nov '97!

Simple shutdown is fine, I'm not too concerned about using the low-batt
signal, I'd rather just time my shutdown and start the countdown as soon
as power is gone.  I experimented some and I get about 5 minutes of
uptime, of course, the computer wasn't doing too much.. :)

Oh, is there a way to set my bios somehow to turn the computer back on
after power is restored?  I have a VIA-503+ mobo with an ATX power
supply.  I'm thinking there is a wake on lan option or something like
that, might be related to APS though..
