Am Trying to use nut (2.2.0 - on an SMEServer V8 aka Centos  5.5) on the 
above UPS, I've tried the megatec driver in serial and USB mode (the 
device has both types of connection), but no success.

An Example:

[root at mailserver ~]# megatec_usb -a UPS -DDDDDDDD
Network UPS Tools 2.2.0- - Megatec protocol driver 1.5.4 [megatec_usb]
Carlos Rodrigues (c) 2003-2007

Serial-over-USB transport layer for Megatec protocol driver [megatec_usb]

debug level is '8'
Checking device (0665/5161) (002/002)
- VendorID: 0665
- ProductID: 5161
- Manufacturer: Cypress Semiconductor
- Product: USB to Serial

- Bus: 002

[root at mailserver ~]#

I can see from the website that the blazer driver has taken over from 
the megatec on, but I don't seem to have it.

Anyone any ideas?
