Yes so I've tried man nut :-)

Ok, I tried this.
The driver was loaded and..... the server shutdown immediately.
I had to attach a screen and a keyboard to the server and boot it in single
to disable nut in /etc/default/
Also make sure that NUT is able to access the serial port, so you may want

This gives me:
radius1:/var/log# ls -l /dev/ttyS0
crw-rw---- 1 root dialout 4, 64 2005-02-26 07:39 /dev/ttyS0
So, I guess not good. What is the correct chown?
chown root:nut /dev/ttyS0 ?
Could this be the reason of the instant shutdown?
I don't want this to happen again. (radius)
