APC Smart-UPS Configuration (RJ-45 Interface)

Can someone tell me how to configure an ip address on a smart card for a UPS?  It is an APC Smart UPS that I am loading PowerChute Network on, but I need to be able to place an address on the card.  Can I simply connect w/hyperterminal?  Please provide detailed steps.

Basically the ups has a serial interface standard and I added a smart card to it with an rj-45 interface.  The rj-45 interface (network card) is the one that I needed to get an ip address on.  The solution was to connect via hyperterminal (using the settings listed in the above manuals) and login as "apc" with "apc" as the password.  Turn "off" bootp, and then assign a address, netmask and default router.  Thanks for the help lrmoore.
