as far as I am aware everything is as it should be. Kindly have a look at my
conf files and let me know.

upsd.conf ------------
ACL all
ACL fileserver
ACL mercyadmin

ACCEPT fileserver
ACCEPT mercyadmin

upsd.users --------------
        password = nut12
#       allowfrom =
        allowfrom = fileserver
        upsmon master           # or upsmon slave

upsmon.conf -------------
POWERDOWNFLAG /etc/killpower

MONITOR QP1000 at fileserver 1 nut nut12 master

# Tell upsmon how to shutdown the system
SHUTDOWNCMD "/sbin/shutdown -h +0"

Apologies, allowfrom is in upsd.users.

You need to specify in upsd.users an allowfrom line to allow a master. See
'man 5 upsd.users' for a more detailed explanation and some examples. If
you already did this, verify that you specified an ACL from upsd.conf and
not an IP-address or -range (which is wrong).

Best regards, Arjen
