APC Back-UPS 400, updated howto for UPS?

Post by Walter Franci » Tue, 02 Nov 1999 04:00:00

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..

1. APC Back-UPS 400 and its UNIX cable

I am trying to get the APC Back-UPS 400, and the so-called UNIX
interface cable provided by UPC to work with Linux.  So far, I can get
it to detect utility failure conditions, but it does not seem to want
to trigger the poweroff function when the system halts, no matter what
combo of signal lines I tell it.  Does anyone have any info on this?

2. Linux and DECnet ?
