To determine the proper driver, would you please run the following usbconfig command as root? Here's an example from my UPS:
# usbconfig -d ugen0.2 dump_device_desc
ugen0.2: <Evolution MGE UPS SYSTEMS> at usbus0, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=LOW (1.5Mbps) pwr=ON (20mA)
bLength = 0x0012
bDescriptorType = 0x0001
bcdUSB = 0x0110
bDeviceClass = 0x0000
bDeviceSubClass = 0x0000
bDeviceProtocol = 0x0000
bMaxPacketSize0 = 0x0008
idVendor = 0x0463
idProduct = 0xffff
bcdDevice = 0x0001
iManufacturer = 0x0001 <MGE UPS SYSTEMS>
iProduct = 0x0002 <Evolution>
iSerialNumber = 0x0000 <no string>
bNumConfigurations = 0x0001
Feel free to chop off the last few digits of the string after iSerialNumber, if it returns something unique.
If idProduct is 0001 (not likely these days), you need tripplite_usb, otherwise usbhid-ups is the correct driver.
The other prerequisite is configuring the permissions. I'm not sure if we ever got this integrated into the FreeBSD ports installation procedure, but do you have a "nut-usb.conf" file in /usr/local/etc/devd? If so, it should configure the appropriate /dev/usb device node to be owned (or at least group-writable) by the NUT user. A devd restart and/or pulling the USB cable might be necessary.
The exact details for the above will depend on the procedure you followed to install NUT (ports vs building from source), so let us know, and we can zero in on the problem quickly.
