Ooops. I missed that one, but you've found that out yourself already. Good!

You're still using nut-2.0.4, do you? It might be helpful to upgrade to
the latest stable version (nut-2.0.5), since some startup problems (the
server starting when the driver isn't ready yet) were resolved.
Unfortunately, your /etc/init.d/nut script sends all information startup
to /dev/null, so I'm not sure if this is the problem.

It may help to see if you can connect to the server, to see if it is
showing information from the driver

	upsc powerware at localhost

If all is well, this will display the variables your UPS supports.
Please post the output here.

Best regards, Arjen
