APC UPS on Synology?
Has anyone gotten this monitoring the APC on a Synology NAS? Synology is supposed to support NUT.

I don't have a Synology, but if you enable debugging on the plugin we might be able to get a bit mode insight. Does it connect and can you post the HS3 log from the plugin when it poll the UPS for updates? Note the HS3 plugin is windows only.

I like to connect to the NUT server running on my Synology as well. I already run WinNUT on the HS3 machine to make sure it shuts down properly, and that works. However, I had to add a username and password to the configuration file like this: MONITOR ups@ 1 monuser secret slave

monuser/secret are the default userid/pwd on the Synology NAS. Without this, WinNUT doesn't work. So I think I need to supply this info to the plugin as well, however I don't see where I can enter this info...

Any suggestions?

Never mind, it works now. Not that I changed anything... still wondering why it works without credentials...
