UPS with serial to USB converter not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a cyberpower UPS.  It has a serial cable connection, and i have a serial to usb coverter on it.  I plugged it into Mediasmart server and it does not find it.  I have no Com ports listed in the device manager.  If i add a com port, how do i direct it to use the USB??

  • A serial to USB converter generally requires a driver; have you installed that?

  • No, i dont have a driver disk.  Is there a generic driver for this?

  • They normally come on a CD with the device, but you could check the manufacturer's web site.
