Once again thanks for your help and patience with me. I did more 
investigation of things, made some more group changes and even edited my 
hosts file since localhost was in there twice (once on and 
once on some ip6 entry). Somewhere in all of that, I seem to have things 
running and I can see both the blazer_usb driver and upsmon in the 
results of a ps command. I can also issue a upsc belkinusb command and 
see the ups properties.

This is a single computer on this ups. And I simply want to have a 
script called when the ups reports going on battery. do I need the 
nut-client going at all?
