[Nut-upsuser] distinguishing identical multiple usbhid-ups devices

By browsing on the net I found http://www.usb-server.com/
it's a USB sharing over ethernet. It could be a viable solution
that on one PC I have USB hub and this software (and somehow
configure it to be hubbed-port distinguishable) and via
ethernet distribute USB ports to the master NUT server running
on some other machine?
Has anyone used this?
