You mean, it does not have a serial port or a USB port?
UPS communicate with the PC either over a serial or an usb port. The
APC 800 that I have has a strange looking connector for the USB port.
It looks like a RJ45 connector but with a different type of notch.
Only the USB cable supplied by them will fit into this socket, the
other end has a regular USB cable that can be connected to the PC.
Works like a champ with apcupsd.
Please look carefully. Ask the vendor how does the UPS communicates
with the PC.
