How to setup a BH500net with only Macs?

This was originally posted on APC forums on 2/19/2012


Hi there

I just bought and installed a BH500net.
Everything seems fine (powerwise) but I seem to not be able to setup the networking for this device. I only have Macs at home so I can't use the setup software which is on the CD that came with the UPS.
I tried to connect to the UPS manually, but it seems it has no 'normal' IP address in the beginning (I only saw network requests coming from '0.0.0.0').

Is there a way to config the initial IP address in another way?

Any help is appreciated!

Cheers
Peter

Hi Peter,

Unfortunately, the only way that you can configure the UPS IP address is by using the software which requires the use of a Microsoft/Windows base Operating system.
