Sorry -- I used to always put my responses below, and then got
criticized for it.  Can't win, I guess.  ;-)

Serial cable.  I would assume that APC's own software would handle the
USB.  I don't remember now why I didn't use APC's, but my vague
recollection was that apcupsd just did it all better.  I notice that
apcupsd.conf refers only to serial ports.  Maybe contact with Riccardo
Facchetti (riccardo@master.oasi.gpa.ti) would be a good idea?
