This looks like a access rights problem.
Can you try the following. Start the driver in debug mode like this.
/path/to/bcmxcp_usb -DD -a PowerWare -u root
Normal the path is /lib/nut but check where the bcmxcp_usb is located.
This should spit out some debug info. Stop it by hitting ctrl-c.
Send me (and the list) the output.

You can remove the baud_rate. It is only for the serial part of the driver.
