It should appear in dmesg as ugen unless you also removed ugen from your 
kernel conf (if so kldload ugen and replug)

Check dmesg for ugen entries, I am assuming the UPS shows up as ugen0.

What are the permissions on /dev/ugen0? For the port NUT to work (which 
you should use :) it needs to be writable by the uucp user so 
chown uucp: /dev/ugen0
