Richard,
thanks for the explanation. In theory it's clear now :)

Is my calculation correct, when I multiply microseconds with (1000 /
233) * 2^32 for decoding it in NTP format? (In this way I understood
the NTP FAQ 5.1.2.3.)
So for 250 millisec it would be 4608334008583

For vice versa I would multiply the NTP fraction part with 2^-32 and
then multiply it with 0.233

Am I correct with these calculations?

Thanks, Franz
