Jonybrv,

Thanks,  I should have stated that I needed to get passed the initial login.  I have since figured the process out.

Oh. Thanks for replying back.

Fancy letting us in on the secret Fred??

Agreed.  I'd like to know as well.

Connect to UPS via "Smart" serial cable 2400,8,n,1
Stab reset button several times, I recommend 10
In terminal program, smack Enter until you get prompt
user: apc
pw: apc
Goto System, User, Admin (3,1,1)
Change admin username and password
log out
Don't do anything else or it will not save (the apc login is temporary, I think you get 2 minutes to do this)
