[Nut-upsuser] Master Works, Slave Does Not

On the slave which is in /var/log/daemon.log I see entries of:
Nov 10 17:43:03 server2 upsmon[2120]: Poll UPS [root at] failed - [root] does not exist on server
In upsmon.conf I have one entry:
MONITOR root at 1 sdrups autocadba2 slave
(Yes, I realize I displayed my password some time ago)
So I think it is saying that root does not exist on server which is confusing as on the server I have.
In upsd.users I have
    [root]	password  = autocadba2	upsmon master	instcmds = ALL
So why is it saying root does not exist on server?

Boy, I guess I got that one wrong.
When I run nmap on the master it does say that port 3493 is open which is expected.
So then what you are telling me means the ports are open. In other words I don't have a firewall issue.
I know this sounds incredibly pedantic, but if you run nmap on the slave and scan the master, and it says the ports are open, then you don't have a firewall issue. The "netstat" output is independent of the firewall.
Now I am stumped as to why the slave does not shut down?

You should see something like this in /var/log/daemon.log on the slave (and on the master, but you said that was shutting down already):
upsmon[1234]: Communications with UPS sdrups at established
Once that connection is up, you can run "sudo upsmon -c fsd" on the master to simulate a power failure (to avoid running down the batteries too much). Note that this will shut down the master system, too. Details are in the upsmon man page.
