comment Back up remote Debian box to Windows PC behind NAT using rsync
Hmmm. Crazy question... how does rsync deal with filenames that are valid for ext3, but invalid or ambiguous under NTFS? Can it do something insane, like create multiple 1-gig tarballs one at a time by recursively adding files from a directory, 7zip it, send the temp tarball, delete the source tarball, and keep going until the whole directory has been sent one tarball at a time (deferring files too big for the current tarball until a later round, and sending them individually or splitting them if necessary)? Ultimately, treating files in the pile of tarballs on my PC like directories of files?

Actually, nothing is tar'ed yet. I was under the impression that rsync (or at least an app derived from it) can compress and/or split files on the fly before sending, then transparently reassemble them at the other end. From what I've read, once you have the remote copy, incremental updates are quick and painless... I just don't know how to GET to the point where I've successfully copied up to 250 gigs over the internet from my server to my desktop PC, recovering from network hiccups and chugging along for a week or two if necessary, w/o bringing the server to its knees along the way. :)

revised Which pair of lugs do the batteries connect to in an Ultra-1000AP (Powercom BNT-1000AP?) UPS
another example. Second Chinese-configured model, this one has "-" connected to IN4 instead of IN5. Probably the best evidence so far that the two negative terminals might be equivalent.

If somebody wants to migrate this to "electronics", they're welcome to do so. I do take offense at the comment that I don't "understand" it. I understand UPS workings quite well, which is precisely why I haven't just tried various permutations of the 4 terminals (or tried removing the board to look at the underside), and why I'm trying to find the right answer first. As far as calling them goes, "Ultra" is CompUSA/TigerDirect's no-name house brand. It's a rebadged UPS. I doubt whether anyone working for Ultra even knows what a schematic is, let alone has a copy of it.

Well, judging by the number of followers and favorites, there are at least a few others out there who think it's worthwhile and interesting. So I'm keeping it up to date with my (several hours at this point) research in case somebody else accidentally disconnects the leads in THEIR ups someday and doesn't realize until it's too late that there are two of each. Although at this point, I'm seriously starting to think that they might be connected in parallel (the + terminals directly, the - terminals after the fuse), because there seems to be no sense or logic behind which one is used in pics.

Because the likelihood of somebody in support having an official answer (or any answer at all) in their approved customer service dialogue script is likely to be somewhere between 'slim' and 'none'? On further reflection, you're probably right about it not being a BNT-600A... it might be a BNT-1000AP (the specs are a closer match, but the BNT has rs232 & mine has USB). Where did you find the diagram you posted? Is there one for the 1000AP, perhaps? My UPS has two batteries, but only a single red and black lead. The batteries themselves are connected in series through a jumper lead.
