	Sure.  Use "ntpdc".  Read the documentation for more info.  Your 
system may have "man" pages installed for the various NTP-related 
programs, but the official documentation is only available in HTML, 
as shipped with the Reference Implementation tarballs.

	The latest version of the official documentation for "ntpdc" can 
be found at <http://www.eecis.udel.edu/~mills/ntp/html/ntpdc.html>.

	This information should also be in the FAQ, and would certainly 
have been available to you, had you searched the archives of this 
newsgroup/mailing list.
