Description Adrian Penisoara 2008-02-27 08:10:00 UTC
In recent sysutils/apcupsd package versions the apcaccess tool has been "downsized" to its minimal "status" functionality, thus the developer(s) have stripped down a lot of code from it -- from the Changelog:

2007-08-03 11:17  adk0212

        * src/apcaccess.c:

        Remove lots of obsolete code. 'status' is now the only supported

However, together with this "downsizing" operation some critical functionality: the tools is not able anymore to fetch the apcuspd daemon binding point (host:port) from its configuration file; by default it can query only the localhost:3551 address.

This will impact running the tool for non-default apcupsd configurations. While it previously was able to correctly read daemon binding point from the configuration file, it can no longer do so in the new versions.

Fix: I have backported some minimal code from the 3.12.4 sources to restore the missing functionality (reading host:port configuration from the configuration file). See patch attached (raises PORTREVISION).

Patch attached with submission follows:
How-To-Repeat: Configure your apcupsd daemon (in /usr/local/etc/apcupsd/apcupsd.conf) to run on a non-default IP and/or port. Running the "apcaccess [status]" command will fail now, including when ran from the default-action scripts like "commok" , "offbattery, "onbattery", etc. This will show up in email reports and web interface.
