So monsoon has arrived and lightning has begun. So thought of connecting the ADSL line to the APC UPS that I'm having and then to the ADSL Modem from MTNL as in case modem goes kaput due to lightning, then will have to run behind MTNL to get it replaced.

Now between the two ports to connect at the back of the UPS, there was a TVSS ground screw. Is it necessary to be connected to anything? Will I still get protection from surges caused due to lightning on ADSL line if this screw is not connected to anything at all? :ashamed:

Ok that's great. I thought it was the other way around, like making data line protection of UPS to use the ground of other surge protectors. So looks like there's nothing more to be done here. :)
