I've tried with GenericUPS, had no luck (didn't get any response from the 
driver at all indicating it was online (or that serial comms were 
happening at all).  I'll double check this more in the coming week, it's 
possible I have a wrong cable or something.

It should be possible to test this with just the driver, manually, in 
debug mode, right?  Or have I been going about this all wrong?

Apologies for that, been working in "drop everything and fix X now" mode 
for a while now, and having this up just hasn't been the greatest of 

I'm trying to get my hands on an rs232 tester, which should simplify doing 
this the "dumb" way.  I should have it in a few days, and that should 
definitively tell me which signals are high and which are not in which 

My offer stands as to "if there's something someone wants to code a 
working driver (ranging from cash to a free UPS or something like that)" 
please contact me offlist.
