The "MODEL" parameter does _not_ mean the actual model of your
ups, you must set it to the nut driver used for your UPS (or
"upsdrvctl").


# UPS device - needed if UPS is locally attached
DEVICE=/dev/ttyS0

Wasn't your UPS connected through USB, not the serial port?

Ok, I'll set up with MODEL=genericups, but I'm not sure what USB uses
for connections <socket> <port> and how to determine the same for a
config file.

Thanks for all you help Markku.

-- To find out where udev is putting your ups, as root run "tail /var/log/message" after plugging the ups into the usb socket, the entry you want will probably contain /dev/ttyUSB1..4. But be warned, it may not always be loaded as the same usb device depending on other usb devices being plugged or unplugged.

You will probably have to write a rule for your ups. Take a look at the man page for udev and examine the existing rules in /etc/udev/rules.d to get the idea. It would be a good idea to create a "file" under /dev, sav /dev/ups, and put a symlink pointing to it in the rule.

Hope this helps,
Tom

Oops: Looks like I made a mistake on the rules location the first time I sent this. It's corrected above.
