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 (email@example.com) would be a good idea?
