The magic cables are the RS-232 ones; AFAIK the USB cables are generic; I'm
using a generic USB B->A cable that came with some other piece of USB HW for
connecting my ACP UPS to my Netra.

I forget if I had to force a ugen or if it simply worked; however, getting
it attached as a ugen* is key, at least for apcupsd.
