inpowerd is an inetd server that receives power event notifications over the network and notifies sysvinit about these power events. It is useful when more than one machine is connected to the same UPS but only one of them communicates with the UPS directly. The rpwrstat utility, which is distributed with inpowerd, can be used to notify inpowerd about power events. The rpwrstat utility is easy to port and currently known to work on Linux/Unix and NetWare. The rpwrstat distribution contains a compiled NetWare Loadable Module which is tested on IntraNetWare 4.11. This makes it possible to connect machines running NetWare and Linux to the same UPS.
