    I cant find valide information on the driver information for this product. Linux has multiple tools to monitor and setup UPS. I am presently trying to get NUT setup for this. how ever I can't seem to get it to work.

    These are the step I took. http://networking.engadget.com/2006/07/25/how-to-network-your-ups/

    Here are the drivers I used. genericups and apcsmart.

    I was also looking to install this how ever it does not seem to be compatible. apcupsd-3.12.4.

    When I try this command I get this.

    [email protected]:~$ upsdrvctl start
    Network UPS Tools - UPS driver controller 2.0.3
    Network UPS Tools - Generic UPS driver 1.31 (2.0.3)
    Can't chdir to /var/run/nut: Permission denied
    Driver failed to start (exit status=1)
    [email protected]:~$

    In my VAR file I dont even have these folders. /var/run/nut

    Any one any ideas. Thank you:confused:

    Create it like this:
    mkdir /var/run/nut
    You might have to change its permissions/ownership afterwards.
