We have a Liebert GXT2 UPS with an SNMP network card in it.  I managed to change the IP address of the device using putty but cannot figure out what else needs to be done for the remote shutdown utility to detect it.  I can ping the new ip address.  In the putty session I see where I can setup communities and traps but dont really know how to use them.  What IP address should I enter for the community?  The IP of the UPS or the Monitoring desktop?  Or something generic like 0.0.0.0.  I've tried the liebert multilink software and tripp lite power lite but can't get either to detect the device.
