I'm unable to download the new firmware for my AP9631. Over the past couple days I've been trying to get the executable to update the management cards but the FTP site has been timing out. The file I'm after is located at ftp://ftp.apc.com/restricted/hardware/nmcard/firmware/sumx/656/apc_hw05_aos656_sumx656_bootmon108.exe
Does anyone from APC have a way to get the FTP site working again or a copy of the firmware elsewhere?
Try using this link
Getting the same issue unfortunately. The download link directs to the ftp.apc.com site which times out.
Hmm, it is working for me so I am not sure what the issue is.
I attached it to this post. Can you grab it from there? Otherwise, I can upload it on a Schneider Box link.
Note, I had to put the .exe in a .zip file to bypass this site's rejection of .exe attachments.
<Removed original attachment from my post. There are no known issues with FTP download occurring.>
That works perfectly, thank you!
I have the same problem where I can't download the firmware from the "Download" link. If some people can download it but others can't it's possibly a permissions issue on the folder. The "Download" button on this page "Download AP9630 Firmware" references an FTP path of: "restricted/hardware/nmcard/firmware/sumx/656/apc_hw05_aos656_sumx656_bootmon108.exe" When I look at the FTP site, in the "sumx" folder I don't see a folder named "656". Attempting to go there anyway (assuming it's just a hidden folder) doesn't work. Can someone take a look at the file permissions on the FTP site? While I'm grateful for the direct link in the forums, not everyone might notice it. Thanks.
PS - The Firmware 6.5.6 Release Notes have the hashes for the file at the very bottom. The notes aren't 100% clear that the hash is for the .exe but I assume it is. I tried to compute the hash on the .exe file, the ZIP file you created (knowing it wouldn't work but tried it anyway), and the firmware files inside the .exe archive (the .exe is a self-extracting archive). None of them lined up. So either the release notes are wrong, the hashes correspond to a file other than the ones I tested, or somehow the .exe you uploaded isn't exactly the same as the one on the FTP site. You said you had a problem with the site rejecting the .exe file, I wonder if somehow it got modified?
Ok now I see all the images. Downloaded, verified hash per the release notes (matches), installed, works. Thank you.
I was asking someone to check this out but what changed? Do you know why it is working now and what the problem was?
Unfortunately my answer to all 3 questions is "I don't know". The problem as I experienced it was that on the FTP site, under this path: "/restricted/hardware/nmcard/firmware/sumx" I only saw 2 folders named "210" and "211". I saved the FTP connection information in Transmit (Panic Software) because I figured I'd be coming back here again. I checked it early today (maybe 7am EDT) and then a little later, maybe 10am EDT and all of a sudden there are 20+ folders there, including "656" which is what I wanted. I tried to download it yesterday using a browser, command-line FTP and Transmit. All 3 came up empty. Today I checked Transmit 2x and the second time everything was there. Point is, I saved the connection info and what didn't work yesterday worked today. Odd.
Is there any way for me to send you a PM? It says you must be an approved friend to do so.
I'll send you one to override that requirement.
we too are unable to download firmware for AP9631 from:
on Mac or PC
UPS Network Management Card v6.5.6 Firmware for Smart-UPS & Galaxy 3500 with AP9630/31/35
as listed at:
on the ftp site:
exists but is empty
drwxrwxr-x 2 ftpadmin pubadm 4096 Sep 17 2002 v115
drwxrwxr-x 2 ftpadmin pubadm 4096 Jul 16 2003 v120
drwxrwxr-x 2 ftpadmin pubadm 4096 Jul 16 2003 v210
I see the same as Neil. Is there a valid download location to get the firmware?
I just tested it right now and was able to download the file. Don't use a web browser to download the firmware, use an FTP client. When you get to the "Download" button to download the file, copy the URL and use that information to download it the file with an FTP client. Also I just tested this with Chrome on a Mac and was able to download the firmware. See if either of those help. Safari chokes on the FTP link.
Thanks for the tip. Copying the URL I managed to get the secure credentials which allowed the FTP client to see the folder.
Internet Explorer certainly can't get the file.
I can't download via Firefox, Chrome, WinSCP, or Filezilla.
I have a problem with the stock 6.5.0 firmware not working with Exchange 2016 when using SMTP settings.
Can you please send me the firmware directly?
I also need a working download link for the firmware 6.5.6.
why don't you publish alternative download links for those who can't use ftp protocol?
the problem is not the ftp protocol, the problem is the server.
According to the support-team Schneider is already working on it, see last post in here:
Thanks Nico, though I noticed they have problems with their FTP server.
Looking at the forum it seems that these problems are recurring and very frequent. If there were alternative links, perhaps users would not be stuck waiting for resolution.
Gianluca, I totally agree with you. It's kind of ironic, that a specialist for solutions for continuous availability of IT-infrastructure has a offline server problem ;)
From my own experiences i can say that Schneider has a great and very accommodating customer service but I guess in this case the support team must rely on their IT-department / contractor.
Site is back up now. Sorry for the delay but yes, we have had to engage Enterprise IT to fix.
And I don't disagree with what you said about this being ironic if I am being honest....
I just tried to download the firmware but the ftp server wants credentials which I don't have.
Is it possible that you re-upload the firmware as an attachment?
Try with these credentials to log into the FTP:
Username = jupiter
Password = Pl@n3t#5
Thank you Angela, that worked.
