No need to apologize here. You're question for the addition of a feature
was relevant on the development mailinglist, but since there is a way to
do this in NUT already exists, any questions about the latter should be
directed to the nut-upsuser mailinglist.

The username and password should be listed in 'upsd.users'. But (and this
is probably what goes wrong), this user should also be allowed to change
variables through the 'actions' field (see 'man 5 upsd.users'). If you
don't list this, the user is denied access by default.
