Hi, I have purchased an APC BE700G-UK UPS to protect my Netgear ReadyNAS 104 and I am bit confused on the instructions provided concerning the powerchute software.
Does powerchute control the UPS via the UPS Ethernet network port, or should the UPS be connected via the USB/data cable included with the UPS to one of the USB ports on the NAS?
My NAS is located on my network via a switch.
Thanks
( I tried to contact APC but their webpage just errors)
 
You should ask this question in NetGear support forum, but I doubt you will be satisfied.

PowerChute is designed with servers in mind, not consumer NASes.

Even if APC do support Linux, you will need a special script that works on your NAS.
