Serial Terminal issue CCR1009

Mon Jan 29, 2018 2:50 am

Hi, we are WISP considering moving our network to Mikrotik routers.

I'm trying to make script for General Electric UPS's we have, but get strange beehive of serial-terminal.

When trying to communicate to the UPS, I only get "p" and beeps. This is the terminal output (values for connection are correct).

  MMM      MMM       KKK                          TTTTTTTTTTT      KKK
  MMMM    MMMM       KKK                          TTTTTTTTTTT      KKK
  MMM MMMM MMM  III  KKK  KKK  RRRRRR     OOOOOO      TTT     III  KKK  KKK
  MMM  MM  MMM  III  KKKKK     RRR  RRR  OOO  OOO     TTT     III  KKKKK
  MMM      MMM  III  KKK KKK   RRRRRR    OOO  OOO     TTT     III  KKK KKK
  MMM      MMM  III  KKK  KKK  RRR  RRR   OOOOOO      TTT     III  KKK  KKK

  MikroTik RouterOS 6.41 (c) 1999-2017       http://www.mikrotik.com/

[Tab]           Completes the command/word. If the input is ambiguous,
                a second [Tab] gives possible options

[Ctrl-A is the prefix key]

When trying PuTTY for remote serial access get even more wired staff:
login as: serial
serial@192.168.3.178's password:

[Ctrl-A is the prefix key]

Tried null-modem cable and a LOOP one also.

Already run out off of ideas.

Any clue?

Hi, your UPS is not supported, only APC are supported and through serial port (not USB).

Regards!!

Hi, I perfectly know this, it's why I'm making my own scripts.
Although I cannot get any useful reply from UPS from a $500 router...

Maybe some reply from the Mikrotik Company? @janisk
