This is the broadcast message: 

Broadcast Message from root at machine.domain.org 
(no tty) at 8:35 EDT... 

Communications with UPS pfSense at localhost lost 

Broadcast Message from root at machine.domain.org 
(no tty) at 8:35 EDT... 

UPS pfSense at localhost is unavailable 

Is that what you are looking for? I'm not sure what you mean by usbconfig, I don't see any logs for NUT on pfSense.

I asked if pfSense was FreeBSD based, you said OpenBSD but it's really based on FreeBSD (and it makes a difference especially for USB related matters). 

Can you paste the output of dmesg and usbconfig with the UPS connected please?
