It would be great when the GUI would support a client configuration for nut. At the moment [[FreeNAS]] acts as a master server only. There is no way to configure [[FreeNAS]] as a client for another NUT-Server.

Also see bug #258 requesting UPS/Nework UPS - although the ticket has been closed, it resolved only half of the request. Few professional IT environments run single items of equipment off a single UPS, therefore supporting the NUT protocol as one of many items of hardware powered by a common UPS and receiving status and shutdown notifications over the network is essential for [[FreeNAS]] to be taken seriously.

I would really love to have this feature as well. I have 2x [[FreeNAS]] boxes and only one UPS. Very hard to configure this today without extra hardware.

William stated in a forum post that he didn't have equipment to help test/develop NUT functionality, so I created a thread to help move this forward however no input from developers yet, which is disappointing.

If you don't have NUT-capable equipment - which is a little hard to believe - then I'll be happy to help test any changes, which should be fairly minor as my thread suggests.
