I had the same problem with APC Back-UPS 500 CS.
All you have to do is ask the guys for a serial cable not usb,
and they will send you one, that`s exactly what i`ve done.
also take a look at sysutils/nut.

Same with sysutils/nut
it *might* work on linux (version 0.45.3), but for now
i think it supports only serial connection for APC according to
On other hand if you`re in a hurry, you can make a serial cable easily.
It`s up to you - order or make :)
however that would help,
RJ45 to RS232(DB25/DB9) right? G`luck.
