Apcupsd with UPSTYPE net
I want to use UPSTYPE net for apcupsd on my pfSense (2.2.5) box. I want it to communicate with apcupsd running on another box.
I am unable to configure this configuration correctly via the UI. I keep getting:
UPSTYPE net slocum.int.unixathome.org:3551
But that will not start:
service apcupsd.sh start
Starting APC UPS Daemon…
/usr/local/sbin/apcupsd: Bogus configuration value (invalid-ups-type)
Terminating due to configuration file errors.
Solution, edit /usr/pbi/apcupsd-amd64/etc/apcupsd/apcupsd.conf and change the offending lines to:
Then apcupsd starts.
And why are you leaving the 'Device' field empty and sticking the stuff into 'UPS Type' field instead?! There's even a detailed table showing what to put where for each UPS type. Sigh. >:(
