To my understanding the UPS has both a USB and Serial port for management. For the UPs to communicate with the software you hook up a usb cable and install the software and configure the management software to you liking. It uses the Power panel personal edition software. http://www.cyberpowersystems.com/products/management-software/pppe.html Does this answer your question?

It is actually quite simple solution. All you need to do is install Putty and go through CMD commands for it so you can automate remote shutdown of Mac without password prompt. Set the script as shutdown script on Windows PC and every time you shutdown Windows it will turn off and Mac but hey you have what you want.


Something like this:

putty.exe -ssh -2 -l username -pw password -m c:remote.cmd hostname

It is missing remote shutdown command for Mac but I think you will manage to find.

Shutdown script could be either through Group Policy or as Scheduled task also this second not 100% sure.
