dual band wireless operation

Hail, I can see the possible need to use the 2.4 GHz band as the WAN connection and using the 5 GHz band for a wireless access point. Does someone on this list know if both radios can be used simultaneously? If not, I will require a wireless access box to be connected to the B3 LAN port in addition ...

Re: Release notes for Excito Bubba 2 software version 2.4.1

Ingo,
Thanks a lot. I may have to wait until I get back after Easter but I will indeed look into this. I suppose this thread should be carried over to B2 and B3 support.

My installation does not create the udev rule required to provide hiddev. I'm not sure that I have much time to address tis at present but would like to get apcupsd wor...

Re: Release notes for Excito Bubba 2 software version 2.4-RC

Hail, I installed RC1 on two B2's following the steps outlined on the wiki and the procedure worked as advertised, however, upon applying the same procedure to RC3, one B2 came up (it works quite well now) but the other (the older one) will not pass the 2 Hz blinking light stage. I tried about 1 doz...

Re: Release notes for Excito B3 software version 2.4

This will only happen when you try to set up a password with a wrong syntax (e.g. starting with a '#'). @Johannes: please comment if neccessary. Thanks Oliver I thought there were other restrictions. Anyway, the password I tried to set was 16 characters, 11-lower case, 1-upper case, 1-numeric and a...

Re: Release notes for Excito B3 software version 2.4

I was able to change the admin password during upgrade but now cannot change it again as admin within the web interface; I'm stuck with the first password I set.

Re: Software update fails

disable mysql

Hail,
What is the cleanest way of disabling mysql in Bubba|two?
It uses a lot of memory and I am currently not using it.
