I have the opportunity to replace an aging UPS with a new APC BE750G
Power Saving Battery Back-UPS one. My question is if anyone here has
ever used this device under FreeBSD. APC does not have=2C or at least I
couldn't find any=2C software for a FreeBSD system. Without the software=2C
the unit is basically useless.

I Googled and found an old message regarding FreeBSD and a similar UPS
<http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-questions/2004-October/062543.h=
tml>
dated 10/2004. Are those issues still relevant? According to
<http://www.apcupsd.com/manual/#freebsd>; I need to insure that this is
a "SmartUPS" The unit I am looking at does not qualify.

I might add that my present unit is connected to a Windows machine. I
intend to replace that one and hook up both PCs to it.
