Which version of FreeBSD is this based on?

Note also that the list of variables is much shorter than some of the other CyberPower HID devices:


Can you open up a root shell, kill the old `usbhid-ups` process, and run it from the command line?

   /usr/local/libexec/nut/usbhid-ups -a ups -DDD

(Adjust the "-a ups" for the name that NAS4Free uses.)

It will indefinitely, but we only need about the first 30 seconds. Please gzip the output before posting to the list. Also, please use reply-all, as this mailing list does not mangle the reply-to headers.
