have you started NUT on both machine the same way (ie using
/etc/init.d/nut or invoke-rc.d)?
the driver starts fine on both machine, but it seems upsd is missing
on the 2nd box...
can you check it (using "ps")?
and if you confirm it is not there, can you try launching upsd
manually and report back.
