Discussion of OutBack Power Technologies Products
I just received my first shipments of the MATE 3!!
I will soon be installing the first unit and will provide some feedback this week.

For the Ethernet Port, The manual says: "This feature is not implemented at this time."
I was able to go to setup menu and configured it and found an FTP server, TELNET service but no HTTP server. Of course, that is documented to be true. We will have to see when that will be available.

He actually SELLS the equipment -- you and I just make stuff that talks to the equipment he sells.
Changes I'd make --
1). Smaller case.
2). Ability to route Ethernet and Hub connections from the bottom.
3). Smaller buttons relative to display size.

I opened the case on my Mate 3 already (of course!) and feel there is plenty of room to re-arrange both RJ45 jacks to make this possible -- changing the mounting of the jack to be in-line with the PCB, then create a channel in the case so the cable can either make a 90* bend into the wall, or straight out the bottom.

I fear the train has already left the station on this one.
