How can we improve Kerio Control?

Shutting down Kerio (computer) when power failure is detected (UPS support)

Would be fine option for UPS. Now if I connect UPS to Kerio computer and power failure occurs, it is no easy way to shutdown kerio OS properly. I must hope that power failure is short-time and UPS holds. Yes, reinstall Kerio from ISO image is thing for few minutes, but it is not professional solution and actual settings backup is needed. (And normal automatic backup is unc/ftp/email backup and NOT

Great idea. We’d like to be able to do this, but haven’t assigned it to a release yet. We’ll leave it open for voting.

    Gooood Idea!!!
    Now I am using this solution.
    I have Windows Database Server with UPS. Winpower software installed and connected to the UPS via USB cable.
    When power failure has been detected Winpower software run Putty (ssh) script.
    This script login to Kerio router an shutdown it.

    I'd like to have that feature installed as well. In some cases, we will need UPS to act on KC, even though it's supposed never to shut down completely - there are extreme cases where no power is available at all.

    Additional to this I would like it when a Control Box automatically reboots after a power failure. Now someone needs to push a button - on the NG100 model, I'm not sure about the 1120.

    Also the ability to install UPS software in Kerio OS appliance
    This software shutdown the server powered by UPS in the event of an power outage.
