I have used apcupsd before. I have an ancient old APC Back-UPS Pro 420 
with serial cable, and everything was working just dandy. Seems that 
almost any recent APC Back-UPS Pro or Smart-UPS is supposed to work with 

However, mine does not work with apcupsd anymore. I think this was my 
fault, as I tried to send data from my FreeBSD machine to the UPS, and 
later realised that my model does not allow this. So I think I may have 
fried the UPS data-line. Possibly it was something else, though, so 
let's hope some more intelligent UPS+FreeBSD users post to this thread.
