APC UPS and Serial to USB Cable

    Hi,
    My friend moved out of the country so he donated to me an agining APC
    Smart UPS 1400. I replaced the battery and it works fine. However, I
    notice to have the UPS interface with the computer (hence, shut down
    the computer if power goes down) it uses RS-232 serial port.

    Is it possible to get a USB to Serial adapter and use that instead of
    the serial port to interact with the APC software?

    Thanks!
