I struggle to determine if this UPS can be connected to the LAN.
I've tried the 2 RJ45 ports and my switch doesn't show any led.
My aim was to use PowerChute Network to stop my devices once battery is running on low levels on a power cut.
Any help would be welcome.
The RJ45 ports are for data line surge protection.
The Back UPS range can only use Powerchute Personal Edition via the USB port.
I try to understand your reply, as I have the same issue, but I'm not very knowledgeable in this type of devices, so I'm afraid I don't quite get your answer.
My idea was to channel my connection from the router to the back-ups to my computer. If I understand properly, this is not the way it works?
The back ups range uses a USB serial connection directly into your pc to use the Powerchute application.
The two Rj45 ports you see are to protect your data lines from surges (your internet cat 5 cable from the outside world goes into the In port and another cat 5 cable goes from the out port into your router)
Thank you! Now I understand!
Have a great day ahead.
