If anyone else on the list has used upsset.cgi, please feel free to chime in. I only use the command-line tools these days.

To change variables or send a command, the user/password you are using needs to have permissions to do so. In the upsd.users man page, the first example, [admin], shows how to allow pretty much everything.

If that doesn't work, please post upsd.users with the passwords removed.
