Are you attempting to run the agent on a machine *without*
the ups comm connected to it, such that it will receive status
from the server that does have it connected and shutdown when
that remote agent that *is* monitoring the ups suggests it should?
I don't think so, I think your ups is connected to the server
that is running the agent. You need not add this port to the
firewall. It talks to itself over the loopback adapter.

a client side app to communicate with it:) Turn that "on" and
