Hi Charles,

I am using the same configs as I have in Linux Mint. What do I need to 
change here?

     driver = blazer_usb
     port = auto
     pollinterval = 5
     desc = "PowerShield Defender 650"
     default.battery.voltage.high = 13.70
     default.battery.voltage.low = 10.40

         password = ********
         allowfrom = localhost
         actions = set
         actions = fsd
         instcmds = all
         upsmon master

MONITOR    defender at localhost 1 local_mon *********** master

> Looks like you are using this as a master system (UPS is directly connected, and upsmon shuts down that system), so the appropriate NUT user needs "upsmon master" in upsd.users.

If you add a slave system that connects over the network, you might not want it to be able to shut down the master, so you would use a different NUT username with "upsmon slave" privileges.
