Thank you for your fast reply,
Yes i am quite sure my Sweex UPS 1000VA is connected to the correct 
port. This port is also owned by the NUT user.
I have tested this by connecting a modem and sending an AT commando to 
it. It happily replayed with OK.

Also i have connected the UPS to a windows machine. The bundled software 
worked on that machine UPSmart 2.14. The linux software on the CD wasn't 
useful since i don't run X. The manual  i got with the UPS was a 
complete waste of time. It was written for a different version software 
i guess you would call it the "safenet" protocol.

This suggests that  sweex  doesn't know what UPS'es they are actually 
shipping. Or to stupid to include the right manual..

ps. Sorry for personally emailing you i guess my mail settings are bored.
