FYI, I had this problem about a year ago w/ the 9120 and I believe that
was the same conclusion.  It'd be really nice to get the USB port working.
I've been using a serial->USB cable.

Also, AFAIK, you can't tell the UPS not to send unsolicited status
updates.  I'll bet it has something to do w/ their software.  They said
just run their software when I asked them to document the USB protocol
for their UPS ;-)
