[Nut-upsuser] Getting "Error: No such host" and [ERR ACCESS-DENIED]

I'm using NUT 2.4.1 with openSUSE 11.2, my UPS is an MGE/Eaton 
Ellipse ASR 1500 USBS.  The set-up is as described at 

Since NUT uses TCP wrappers, I have the /etc/hosts.allow entry

upsd :    10.0.0/24, localhost, LOCAL,      : ALLOW

When I pull the plug from the wall to test my setup, I get the 
sequence of KDE notifications and finally a successful shutdown; 
just as one would expect from the configuration. :-)

However I cannot access upsc

rprice at glacon2:~> upsc -l
rprice at glacon2:~> upsc -L `upsc -l`
Error: No such host

and no log messages appear in /var/log/messages or /var/log/warn.

On system startup I get the following messages in /var/log/messages

   usbhid-ups[23704]: Startup successful
   upsd[23707]: listening on port 3493
   upsd[23707]: listening on ::1 port 3493
   upsd[23707]: Connected to UPS [Eaton-66781]: usbhid-ups-Eaton-66781
   upsd[23708]: Startup successful
   upsmon[23711]: Startup successful
   upsmon[23712]: Login on UPS [Eaton-66781 at localhost] failed - got
                  [ERR ACCESS-DENIED]

Command ps aux reports:

rprice at glacon2:~> ps aux | grep upsd
upsd 7632  0.0  0.0  20288  1144 ?  Ss  Sep26  0:52 /usr/lib/ups/driver/usbhid-ups -a Eaton-66781
upsd 7636  0.0  0.0  16176   888 ?  Ss  Sep26  0:06 /usr/sbin/upsd -u upsd
upsd 7640  0.0  0.0  16140   816 ?  S   Sep26  0:05 /usr/sbin/upsmon

Question 1: What is causing the "Error: No such host" and [ERR ACCESS-DENIED] ?

Question 2: Should I have a second instance of upsmon running ?
