I was not able to get my APC-based hardware working with nut-ups. I was 
able to get a partly modified apcupsd working with it, though, using a 
USB connection to my stupid little 500VA APC units, removing all the 
UPS HID stuff from the kernel and using libusb..

Unfortunately if I reboot the machine the APC UPSs are connected to they 
get into a state where they stop responding--at all--and the UPS needs 
to be power-cycled to get it to come back, so that's just about the 
extent of my delvings into UPS hardware communications.

I do have a bad-ass opti-ups 1200 (or was it 1500) that's currently 
powering some server hardware, but it's RS-232-only, so again I'm 
afraid I don't have any better news for you.
