 With your Sure GPS showing "PPS Clock Discipline", what does your
ntp.conf file look like? I ask, because if I list == server ==
I don't get anything (even though I did the soldering per

But when I list == server == is works just fine.  I also
a link of ln -s /dev/cuau0 /dev/pps0 and ln -s /dev/cuau0 /dev/gps0
Is that similar to your setup?


godzilla# ntpq -c clockvar
assID=0 status=0000 clk_okay, last_clk_okay,
device="NMEA GPS Clock",
poll=3053, noreply=0, badformat=0, baddata=0, fudgetime1=0.000,
stratum=0, refid=GPS, flags=5
