I have installed nut 2.0



Aug 14 16:37:26 server kernel: hiddev96: USB HID v1.10 Device [American
Power Conversion Back-UPS BF500 FW:814.s3.I  USB FW:s3] on

Aug 14 16:37:26 server kernel: hub 5-0:1.0: USB hub found

Aug 14 16:37:26 server kernel: hub 5-0:1.0: 2 ports detected


My ups.conf : [APC350]

driver = apcsmart

port = /dev/usb/hidddev96

desc = "APC UPS"



[root at server etc]# /usr/local/ups/bin/upsdrvctl start

Network UPS Tools - UPS driver controller 2.0.2

Network UPS Tools (version 2.0.2) - APC Smart protocol driver

        Driver version 1.99.7, command table version 2.0


Unable to open /dev/usb/hidddev96: No such file or directory


Things to try:


 - Check 'port=' in ups.conf


 - Check owner/permissions of all parts of path


Fatal error: unusable configuration

Driver failed to start (exit status=1)         



What must I change to get it work
