[Nut-upsuser] Things seem to be working but upscmd does nothing

The nut ups daemons seem to be communicating with the UPS but upscmd 
gives me no joy.   Running commands do nothing and produce no output.  
Using the web interface returns an authentication failure and that is 
the only clue I  have.  I believe I have everything setup correctly but 
it's not working.  Can someone review this and give me clues as to what 
I should research next?

         serial = JS1005032730
         desc = "Primary 2200XL with huge battery pack - the big guy"
