The "-l" and "-L" options can be considered the "short" and "long"  
versions of the "list UPSes" option (where the long version also shows  
the description from ups.conf).

If I understand correctly, your second command line should be: upsc  
`upsc -l` (although this won't work if you add a second UPS).

Your upsd user and password in upsmon.conf (on the MONITOR line) need  
to match an appropriately privileged user in upsd.users.

We're in the midst of overhauling the documentation, so if you see any
