If a man will begin with certainties, he shall end in doubts; but if he will be content to begin with doubts, he shall end in certainties.

I have a rather complex setup in my home network. I have as a backup and storage server a D-Link DNS-320 ShareCenter rev.B NAS.
This device has support for UPS power management via USB, so I attached my InnoTech UPS device and configured the NAS in
Master mode. Then I lost something like five days trying to figure out the username and password to setup upsmon client to work properly, because I could not find the user and password for
master mode in DNS-320. There was info about in the manual, although there should have been.
After various emails and google searches, I’ve found a way to root the nas using
fun_plug. The website hosting the guide is rather sketchy, be careful, there are many clickbaits.
After login to the NAS as ‘root’ user via
telnet I was able to find the
upsd.conf file and read it. The default configuration for
NUT master mode in DNS-320 is:
[root] password = 123 upsmon master [client] password = 123 upsmon slave
There’s a good chance that other DNS-3xx ShareCenters have the same configuration.
