Hi all

Got a couple of these.  The OS is win2k sp3.  I've downloaded the latest lansafe 5 - installs OK but won't see the ups.

When I restart the box win2k detects a powerware ups but can't find a driver for it.  And joy our original CD has disappeared and I can't find a driver on their website or driversguide.com

Can anyone supply a link to the driver or the original cd download.  I wondered about the cable since the pin-outs have to be exact.  But surely if that was the prob, win2k wouldn't detect it.

Much TIA
