[ntp:questions] PPS on sparcstation10 parallel port

Hello everyone,

i tried to use the parallel port on a sparcstation10 (/dev/bpp0) for
PPS-signals (pin 10 "Ack") but without success. I made a symlink 
  /dev/pps0 -> /dev/bpp0 
and in ntp.conf 

The clock is shown with ntpq -p but "reach=0". Am i missing something or is
the parallel port only supported for Intel-machines?

(Solaris2.6, ntp4.1.1, Meinberg GPS16x via serial port is working)

Thanks in advance
