I have a Model Number: [Back-UPS ES 600M1] UPS made by APC connected to my pfSense with a USB connection. I can't figure out why NUT won't work. I checked that the system is seeing the UPS which it is:
Using the following command: usbconfig dump_device_desc
I am able to see the UPS is connected via USB

In the NUT settings I have USB Type set to "Local USB" and the driver set to "usbhid"
I can't figure out why this isn't working. If anyone else more experienced has any idea how I can get this working I'd really appreciate your help. Thanks in advance
