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 192.168.1.10 on a Management Card with 00-a1-b2-c3-d4-e5 MAC address.
- On your Windows machine, start command prompt and type: C:\>arp -s 192.168.1.10 00-a1-b2-c3-d4-e5
- Type: C:\>ping 192.168.1.10 -l 113
- 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.
