I was unable to setup
nut on a server for the UPS Eaton 5E with USB connection. All results what did I get was that driver is not running and UPS is not recognized. What kind of driver is suitable for me and what kind of settings? Unit is Eaton 5E.

Please check your device availability with 'lsusb' and make sure you have an up-to-date version of NUT. If this does not help, try running the driver with at least 'subdriver', 'vendorid' and 'productid' options specified. Please refer to the man page for details about these options (man 8 blazer).

Update: I tried to connect a desktop linux Xubuntu 12.04, which detected the UPS and UPS vendor via usbhid-ups driver, but did not detected any battery state and shows battery as discharged (what is not true, server is running on it several minutes with no troubles) and fiel technology as Unknown.
