Description Tom Diehl 2002-05-19 15:11:28 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper: 
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.0.0-10; en) 
Description of problem: 
After upgrading to 7.3 I am no longer able to send instant commands to the 
ups. It will not allow me to authenticate. 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
How reproducible: 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1.Send  upscmd -u admin -p passwd  ups@localhost fptest to the ups. 
Actual Results:  Instant command failed: Access denied 
Expected Results:  Ups should perform a front panel test. 
Additional info: 
It appears that the config file formats for nut have changed and that someone 
updated the but rpm to the latest version of nut without checking what they 
were upgrading to. There are various man pages missing and the config files in 
some cases do not even have the same names. More info available upon request.

you have to set the permissions for the information server upsd in  
I will add more man pages in 0.45.4-3. You will find it in the next rawhide

What does that mean?? Set the permissions to what?? What is "the information 
server upsd"??   
I have an /etc/ups/uspd.users that works when I use the rpms from 
When I use the rpms from redhat it does not work. Same file, same permissions.

I am closing this since obviously no one is interested. Besides I am
not sure if it is still an issue or not.
