Summary0000552: NUT 2.4.3 port missing apcsmart driver
DescriptionI am currently using APC's PowerChute Plus for OS/2 version 4.2.3 and was looking for an alternative that could inter-operate with other platforms as this one is not compatible with current APC software, or any other software as far as I can tell.

It was suggested I might consider NUT as a replacement and I was pleased to find your port of this to OS/2 and eCS. Unfortunately as it stands this is not usable to me, as it lacks the driver to talk to my APC Smart-UPS via the serial cable. Given you did this port long ago, I don't know if you could port this for the 2.4.3 release or if it would make more sense to port the current release including this driver as well.

Where did you find this port? I don't recall porting it, and have no such source on my hard drive.

note the comment in the readme:
NOT tested as I don't have a UPS. SNMP and usb backends included

I found it on os2site via a search engine. As I have two APC SmartUPS units that connect via serial cables I was hoping that you would be able to port the apcsmart driver that is needed if I wanted to use NUT with them.

Given you no longer have the source I suspect this is not likely to occur. I have no idea how many others would find this package useful, but I suspect someone must have requested you do this port. Perhaps you could add porting the current release to your list of future ports.

As I noted in my initial note, I am at present using APC's PowerChute Plus for OS/2 with these units. It does the job, but lacks compatibility with any other software. As I am working more with linux these days I would like to be able to monitor these UPS systems from there, but as the systems being protected are those OS/2 systems I need either a package that can talk to PC+-OS/2 or a package that can take its place on the OS/2 systems.
