Hope the procedure goes well!

It's a nuisance message. While NUT can support SSL to protect the passwords that upsmon sends to upsd, it doesn't apply to upsc, which doesn't send passwords. Known issue for 2.7.4.

The full set of variables is hiding behind another APC-specific protocol. At least this time the protocol is documented. I have a Smart-UPS C1000 that does the same thing. I've been meaning to mess with it, but so many other projects... Also, hard to argue with "it works".
