I finally solved it, if anyone else has a tripplite: use the following
method on freebsd:
First, you have to recompile the kernel to NOT use usbhid.
Install the kernel, reboot the system.
Create the following config files:
driver = usbhid-ups
port = auto
vendorid = 09ae
copy the upsd.conf.sample to upsd.conf file, change the 'listen' address to
chown the file to uucp (the default user that upsd becomes)
edit the /usr/local/etc/rc.d/nut configuration file to start the driver
thingy as root (to get around the problem of driver permissions)
change the nut_prestart to have -u root
edit the /etc/rc.conf file to start nut:
