This is something that needs fixing in 'upscmd'. It erroneously  
doesn't print the server response after sending off a command, which  
is very confusing. I already fixed this in the development version a  
couple of minutes ago.

Looks good.

If this is all there is in this file, you've missed setting up the  
permitted instcmds and actions for this user. See 'man 5 upsd.users'  
for an explanation. Failing to set this up, will default to not  
allowing instcmds and variable settings at all.
