Setting IP address on a APC UPS from command prompt.

Posted by Marek.Z on 16 April 2009

If you can’t set the IP address on a APC Management Card using the IP Configuration wizard, you can follow these steps to set it manually. For example, you want to set the IP address on a Management Card with 00-a1-b2-c3-d4-e5 MAC address.

  1. On your Windows machine, start command prompt and type: C:\>arp -s 00-a1-b2-c3-d4-e5
  2. Type: C:\>ping -l 113
  3. Now you can use Telnet or your Internet browser to finish the configuration (Default Gateway, subnet etc.) of the APC Management Card. The default user/password is apc/apc.

Note: your Windows machine and the APC Management Card must be on the same subnet.

      Hi TJ,

      Can you ping other devices on this network segment? Try reset to factory defaults and repeat the steps described above.


      P.S. Apologies for late response.
