APCUPSD - CYBERPOWER USB UPS



  • I have an existing cyberpower ups model CP1000AVRLCD working with APCUPSD running on a RASPI.

    I am trying to move it over to my pfsense box but I am having trouble matching the working apcupsd.conf in pfsense.

    The problem is that the GUI requires that you enter in a "UPS TYPE" which prevents APCUPSD from using auto discover. Auto discover is the only way the CP1000AVRLCD will work with apcupsd.

    There was a similar problem raised in this thread however the response does not correctly address the issue.

    Existing setup with RASPI is running Debian with the same version of ACPUPSD that is running on my pfsense box. (3.14.12 (29 March 2014) debian)

    Here is the working apcupsd.conf

    UPSNAME RASPI
    UPSCABLE usb
    UPSTYPE                <–--------------- Note that this is left blank which forces auto discovery.

    I tried manual changing the apcupsd.conf file in my pfsense box to leave UPSTYPE blank and restarting apcupsd but it still didn't work.

    Has anyone figured this out?



  • Hi. Did you ever get this sorted out. I'm trying to get a PR1500LCDRTXL2Ua working with NUT on pfsense through the pfsense gui, but having no luck.

    Thanks.

    What problem are you having? What configuration did you use?
