[Nut-upsuser] Trouble with NUT?

Hello Charles,

Thank you for your advice!

I think an old version of nut might have had something to do with it.  I
rebooted the system after I wrote this and things began to get a lot better.
Then, I found that my LISTEN statement was not really appropriate.  All
working now!

Best Regards,
Drew V-S

Which version of the kernel?

Do you know if anything like SELinux or grsecurity are enabled?

This confirms your suspicion that usbhid-ups is the correct driver.

First, is there anything that might have already bound to that port?
(An old copy of NUT, for instance?)

I think you can find out by running "lsof -n | grep 3493" as root.

You can also get more verbose debugging output by specifying "-DDD" on
the upsd command line.

If that doesn't work - what does config.log say about IPv6 support?
