I'm running a freebsd 6.2 system and built the nut port.

I cannot seem to connect to serial com1 or 2


/usr/local/etc/nut> upsc apcBK500 at localhost

Error: Connection failure: Connection refused


My configs:





driver = genericups


port = /dev/cuad1




MONITOR apcBK500 at localhost 1 upsmon nomspu slave




ACL all

ACL localhost


ACCEPT localhost



Driver results:


/usr/local/etc/nut> /usr/local/libexec/nut/upsdrvctl start

Network UPS Tools - UPS driver controller 2.4.1

Network UPS Tools - Generic contact-closure UPS driver 1.35 (2.4.1)

UPS type: Powerware 5119 RM


Out of desperation. upsd.users



        password = password

        actions = SET

        instcmds = ALL



        password  = password

        upsmon slave


MONITOR apcBK500 at localhost 1 upsmon nomspu slave



I'm connected via a db9 serial because this Backups BK 500 does not have a
usb port.

I've tried just about everything I can think of to manually connect. I've
scanned the previous posts for weeks now and sadly I must ask the list. How
do I get nut working with this apc backups BK 500?
