Firmware Update of AP8841

This question was originally posted by Matthew on APC forums on 3/31/2020


We have a very out of date firmware of 5.1.6 and I'm trying to update it. When I open the Windows upgrade utility and put in all the required information, it says the FTP login is invalid. It pings successfully and I can log into the web interface with the admin account.

1) Is it ALWAYS apc/apc for FTP login?

2) if it isn't, is there a way to reset it?

Unfortunately our data center guy no longer works with us and he took care of all of this. Thanks all.

Hi,

Log into the PDU and go to Administration - Network - FTP and verify FTP is enabled. 

If enabled go to Administration - Security - Administrator and verify the Administrator is apc and the password is apc.
