ISA Server and APC Powerchute

I've installed APC's Powerchute Network Shutdown Service on my server running ISA Server 2004. It allows the server to talk to the SmartCard installed on my UPS via TCP/IP.

However, it seems that ISA is not allowing the communications to take place. I've contacted APC support and they gave me the port numbers needed for the utility to communicate with the card.

I've tried every combination of ports, inbound/outsound, TCP/UDP, send/receive, etc but still no luck.

Has anyone run into this same problem?

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Thanks,

At least I now know I'm not the only one out there with this problem.

I tried some of the suggestions off of the ISAserver forum but still no luck.

Why not simply go into the power options of desktop, screen saver, power button, and then the UPS tab, and set it up for the pre-selected APC -- select button, and just pick APC, and do nothing more than that.  It should use a generic APC driver for the service.

Just make one Firwall Rule on Your ISA Server 2004
1. Name:- Internal, Action:- Allow, Protocol:- All Outbound Traffic, From/Listener:- Internal & Local Host, To:- Internal & Local Host, Condition:- All Users.

Place This Rule on Top.
Things will Work

GizmoKid,

Wow! That worked.

Now I'm thinking because it's setup that the internal network/local host is talking to the internal network/local host, I don't have to be concerned that I've inadvertently opened ports to the outside that could cause problems?

Many thanks,
Dave_O
