NUT and UPS via USB

  • Hmm, I can't make it work.

    I have an APC SmartUPS 1000i (SUA1000i).
    I have a USB cable going from the UPS to one of the firewall USB ports.
    I tried running dmesg and I dot see the USB…

    If I unplug the USB cable, it says this on the console
    ugen0: at uhub0 port 2 (addr 2) disconnected
    ugen0: detached

    If I plug it back in it shows:
    ugen0: American Power Conversion Smart-UPS 1000 FW:600.3.I USB FW:1.4, class 0/0, rev 1.10/0.06 addr2> on uhub0

    So as I can read this, the USB port registeres it.

    The pfSense NUT package has been set up with
    UPS Monitoring: Local UPS
    Local UPS Name: Smart-UPS
    Local UPS Model: APS Smart-UPS USB
    Local UPS Interface: auto (USB only)

    Any ideas?</cd-224e></toshiba></aborted></ready,dsc,error></american></generic></system></ps></at></keyboard></pc></i82555></mii></intel></i82555></mii></intel></pci></pci-pci></generic></mii></via></ata></ata></via></isa></pci-isa></via></via></via></via></via></via></via></via></via></via></via></via></vga-compatible></pci></pci-pci></via></acpi></acpi></power></acpi></acpi></vt9174></software></fpu,vme,de,pse,tsc,msr,sep,mtrr,pge,cmov,pat,mmx,fxsr,sse>

  • I was also having problems with the nut package in 1.2.1 RC2 and a APC ES-350 using a usb cable.
    I was able to resolve the issue by running a search and replace on "nut.xml"  and replacing all instances of "newhidups" with "usbhid-ups"

    Hope that helps

    P.S as always it would be a good idea to make a backup of "nut.xml" before you start!
