You should see something like: (trimmed to fit.) usb 1-1.3: new full speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 17 usb 1-1.3: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice usb 1-1.3: New USB device found, idVendor=067b, idProduct=2303 usb 1-1.3: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0 usb 1-1.3: Product: USB-Serial Controller usb 1-1.3: Manufacturer: Prolific Technology Inc. usbcore: registered new interface driver usbserial usbserial: USB Serial support registered for generic usbcore: registered new interface driver usbserial_generic usbserial: USB Serial Driver core usbserial: USB Serial support registered for pl2303 pl2303 1-1.3:1.0: pl2303 converter detected usb 1-1.3: pl2303 converter now attached to ttyUSB0 usbcore: registered new interface driver pl2303 pl2303: Prolific PL2303 USB to serial adaptor driver Depending on the chip they use, the messages may be different, but the important one is "pl2303 converter now attached to ttyUSB0" - it tells you that the device is /dev/ttyUSB0. If you get something like that when you plug the UPS in, then you can use it that way. But I would probably create a udev rule that creates a /dev/USP alias.
