Re: APC UPS PowerChute PLUS exploit...

Due to many e-mails received of people wanting the source of the
freely available upsd, I sent this mail to the list.

upsd-1.0 was programmed by a guy at Wildwind Communications. It
used the dumb mode of APC SmartUPSes and is depreciated.

Then, also at Wildwind Communications, upsd-2.0 appeared. It uses
active ("intelligent") mode of the SmartUPS and reports actual
configurations, voltages, etc to the syslog.

Problem: Wildwind Communications seem to no longer exist on the net.
Their FTP site is no longer registered at InterNIC (ftp.ww.net).

So I put the source at our anonymous FTP server for download.
Please write your own settings for your UPS (configurable parameters)
in apc_static.c, because they are changing from one country to
another. Feedback and working configurations would be appreciated.
I use this upsd with FreeBSD 2.2.5 and a SmartUPS 700.
