No problem :-)

BTW, I've had a spring-clean and the code in CVS (to interface with NUT) is 
now much better than in the latest release (v0.6).  We should be releasing a 
new version "soon", but if anyone is interested in trying MonAMI, I'd 
recommend compiling from CVS or waiting for the next release.  If people 
would like, I can announce the new version on this list.

What I hope is a simple question: is it possible to lock-out unauthenticated 
logins from asking monitoring questions (i.e. "LIST VAR xxx")?  It wasn't 
clear to me from the docs whether LIST VAR xxx will always succeed or whether 
one can configure a upsd server so it requires a successful login before 
allowing these queries.

Currently, there is no support within the monami NUT plugin to allow people to 
log in.  It would be (relatively) straight forward to add this; but if the 
information is always available there doesn't seem any point in adding this 
extra functionality.
