Tutorial - APC UPS Initial IP Address Configuration

The network where the UPS is connected must have a DHCP Server.

First, you need to connect your APC UPS to the Network.

The APC UPS will receive an IP address automatically from the DHCP server.

The problem is that we don't know the IP address that the APS UPS got from the DHCP server.

Now, you need to access the APC WEBSITE and download the software named: Network Management Device IP Configuration Wizard 5.0.3

Part number of the software: SFDIPW503
