As far as I can tell, the OP is using the megatec driver. This is a  
serial driver.

Most likely, this works fine. Otherwise the megatec driver would be  
complaining about not being able to open the port. So most likely,  
either the UPS doesn't speak megatec protocol at all, or uses a  
modified version that the megatec driver doesn't support. Upgrading to  
blazer_ser would at least give us a chance to see what is going on.
