NUT Master on Home Assistant

Hi Community!
I have a question regarding connecting to a NUT server that I have running on a Home Assistant install.

The setup: I have an APC UPS connected by USB to my Home Assistant running on a Raspberry Pi. I am able to get the UPS’s parameters perfectly on my Home Assistant. Here is my HA Config:

As you can see it is configured as a netserver.

I am now trying to connect to this server from my WD My Cloud EX2 Ultra. I enter the IP Address of my Home Assistant install as follows:

But get the error “Your WD My Cloud EX2 Ultra could not connect to the UPS (master) device.”

I am unable to enter port number 3493 when entering the IP address.

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you!

Hi @tejasitraj,

Please refer to this KB article: Network UPS Configuration on a My Cloud

@Neha_07 this does not help at all, did you even read the question? I am trying to use a Home Assistant as a NUT Master, not another WD device like the KB article says.
