As per suggestions I installed 'NUT' and used the excellent website
tutorials to configure it (just google 'nut howto').
The upscode2 driver didn't work, and I emailed Meissner's support to ask
for details of the protocol. They sent me a word document with heading
'Centralion' and when I looked it up on the NUT site it showed me that
the Centralion UPS uses the 'blazer' driver.
:( But it still didn't work... in a fit of pique I tried ttyS1 even
though I had it plugged into the top com port (usually ttyS0). And now
it works (which means almost all my other failures would have failed
anyway, so actually, I know nothing about anything except:
Meissner NET1000 UPS -> NUT -> Centralion Blazer driver -> Ubuntu Breezy
Peace of mind while Koeberg is down... ;-)
