- I have googled and searched the archives of this mailing list, but couldn't find anything that helped me.
I have connected the UPS to the Linux box using the appropriate cable (shipped with the UPS, serial connector at one end (PC), RJ45 connector at the other (UPS). In my apcupsd.conf, there are the following entries (among others, of course):
2017-05-15 14:09:24 apctest 3.14.14 (31 May 2016) debian
Checking configuration ...
sharenet.type = Network & ShareUPS Disabled
cable.type = Custom Cable Smart
mode.type = APC Smart UPS (any)
Setting up the port ...
apctest FATAL ERROR in smartsetup.c at line 155
PANIC! Cannot communicate with UPS via serial port.
Please make sure the port specified on the DEVICE directive is correct,
and that your cable specification on the UPSCABLE directive is correct.
apctest error termination completed
I think I am missing something obvious here. Any ideas?
