[Nut-upsuser] Tripplite Smart1200LCD and Debian

I added the productid into the ups.conf file and it has made some progress. Now when I run upsdrvctl start, it shows
Network UPS Tools - UPS driver controller 2.4.3
Network UPS Tools - Generic HID driver 0.34 (2.4.3)
USB communication driver 0.31
Using subdriver: TrippLite HID 0.4
But when I run "upsc tripp" (I named the power supply tripp in the ups.conf file), it tells me this:
Error: Connection failure: Connection refused
Any more thoughts?
Thanks for your help so far,

I installed NUT version 2.4.3 and I have pored through pages and pages of other posts, but for the life of me I can not get it to recognize the Tripplite. I know its an 09ae:2009 device and I've tried to add a rule in /lib/udev/rules.d/52-nut-usbups.rules as according to some posts, but to no avail.

> The usbhid-ups driver in NUT 2.4.3 didn't have an explicit entry for 09ae:2009, but along with the udev modification, you can add "productid=2009" to the ups.conf file. In the following thread, which you may have run across, Rory had added productid=2009 to the configuration file, but didn't have the udev entry:
