Sorry to dump this on the list as I don't have time to research this.
I have had a phone call from a friend out shopping for a UPS for a Linux
server I set up for him, si I need to find out quickly.
Can anyone make a quick recommendation? Must be ethernet interface, not
If you *must* have an ethernet interface, the price skyrockets,
however APC UPS' are well equipped in the connectivity area, the
newer (small) units have a combo USB/Serial port dependant on the
cable you get and apcupsd (http://www.apcupsd.org) is a nice piece of
software. The more expensive units also have a web/snmp/ethernet
card as an option. I also hear that the MGE UPS' are pretty good as well.
