Yes i have tried mode 5, but then the LED does not flashing. Only in mode
16 the LED flashes.

The paper is realy old it refers to xntp and for Suse Linux 6.3 up to 7.3.
In this paper they say that after xntp 4.1.0 the mode 16 is the correct
mode for this clock. XNTP bevor 4.1.0 must be patched with code form

The serial port is ok. I have on the same maschine WinXP installed,
and the clocks works correct with other software. I try to use
Meinberg NTPD with this clock, but mode 16 does
not work on windows.
