I've got it !
Actually, it was obvious.
A question of rights on the USB port.
As soon as the process has the right rights (?) on the port, it runs smoothly.

Sorry for the useless post...

Subject: usbhid-ups and APC Smart-UPS 1500

Hello !
I'm totally new with Linux, just migrating from NetWare.
Our brand new server runs SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Service Pack 1
SLED11 ships with NUT 2.2.2-69.11

I'm trying to setup NUT to communicate with our UPS over the USB cable.
First, I've tried with a "standard" ups.conf. Error message : device is (or not yet) supported.

Second attempt, including productid in ups.conf. Error message : no matching HID UPD found.

Third attemps : running usbhid-ups in debug mode.
Well, it seems that the UPS is recognized, after all.
Something wrong between upsdrvctl and usbhid-ups ?
I guess it's something obvious. But I don't knox where.
Can you help ?
Many thanks.
