As this was a Globalscale product I scoured their site and posted requests on 
their plug PC forums for the location.  I should have probably looked at 
Marvell.  The management executable (uaputl) looks like it was a port of a 
windoze package.

root at guruslack:~# uaputl
uaputl.exe - uAP utility ver 1.12
         uaputl.exe [options] <command> [command parameters]

hmmm I wonder what gave that away ;-)
