Subject: [gentoo-user] UPS and serial or USB connections
Date: Sat, 15 Sep 2012 03:28:00
1 Howdy,
3 Newegg just had a sale on a really nice UPS. I got one. Anyway, it has
4 both serial and USB connections. I have a question about these. I
5 could use either one but not sure if it matters. Does the USB
6 connection offer any additional features over the serial connection? I
7 could use USB but would rather use serial since nothing else I have is
8 serial but I have a bit of USB devices. Also, I never disconnect the
9 serial cable from either the system or the UPS when either is in use.
10 Sort of defeats the purpose I guess. Since it also has screws to make
11 sure the serial cable doesn't come undone, the serial has one
12 advantage. I'm not sure what would happen if it looses the connection
13 all of a sudden. Does it do like NORAD and assume power is out? lol
15 So, since I already have everything set up for serial connections,
16 should I just keep using it or does the USB have more goodies?
18 Thanks.
20 Dale
