APCUPSD NIS port 3551 testing
Easiest way to determine is NIST enabled is to use tool like https://www.hw-group.com/software/hercules-setup-utility Hercules to connect 3551 port of APCUPSD and give following HEX command ' 0006737461747573 ' on one of the send fields.
If connection works, you should see status output on received data window.
if it doesn't work, problem might be like what I had with raspberry pi connected ups that NISIP was set to 127.0.0.1 so that outside connections were not allowed. I set ip to 0.0.0.0 to allow connections.
