Thanks for using Apcupsd and for documenting your experience.

I was unaware that FreeBSD 6.1 connects the UPS to ugen automatically. I submitted a kernel patch to accomplish that quite a while ago but didn't realize it was merged. Thanks for pointing out the change; I'll update the Apcupsd documentation accordingly.

The preferred DEVICE setting for USB in apcupsd.conf is generally empty, i.e.:

DEVICE

That will allow Apcupsd to automatically locate your UPS and is appropriate for installations with a single USB UPS connected. Specifying /dev/ugen* is a somewhat risky since connecting another USB device could cause the device nodes to enumerate differently and the ugen node you pointed to may become incorrect.
