Nut & APC SNMP
mhab12 last edited by
I'm attempting to configure NUT to shutdown PfSense with our APC Smart UPS. It's a rack mount unit with an SNMP mgmt card and should work as described on the NUT site. I don't know where I'm going wrong. I have the login/pw and IP correct, where do I set which driver to use? I have chosen remote UPS on the GUI page, but the service will not start. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
FYI - this is the model we have

The description in this package may be a little misleading. Remote doesn't mean SNMP enabled devices, it means a remote NUT server. If you had another box setup with NUT, running as a master, you could then setup the pfsense as a slave.
While it is possible to connect to a snmp apc, the support needs to be hacked in. I may try and contact the package maintainer to see if we can add the required files to support snmp.
