Thanks to @alexey in the following forum thread for highlighting this issue. When configuring a usb UPS the auto suggestion can be misleading; if we change this to the suggestion type used in the user and password boxes then it would be more obvious that this is a tip not an auto fill and would be more consistent with the user and password fields in this regard ie:

change the "auto" suggestion to "'auto' or serial port device name" akin to the tool tip advice.

Please update the following forum thread when this issue is resolved:

make nut port placeholder text more informative #982 #1458
Several users have interpreted the previous "auto" placeholder
/ example text as an auto fill and so left it blank, this can in most
instances lead to a mis-configured nut. Changing the placeholder
text to represent more of a hint (it is already greyed out) should
help with this.

establish a NUT backend port default of auto #982 #1458
By defaulting to auto for the port setting we cater for the
most common connection type going forward. This takes
effect when the port entry is left blank: a situation that
has proved to be common.
