Hi lists,

I'm running ntp4.2.8p3 on Solaris11.2 (Netra-T4). Now, I'm trying to enable
ATOM module (PPS)

I complied
sh configure --enable-ATOM --enable-LOCAL-CLOCK --disable-ipv6 --with-ntpsnmpd=no
and installed successfully.

Because Netra-T4 lacks serial interface, I bought a perl serial card which support Solaris11

It seems to be working, but when I tried to enable ATOM module by adding 
to /etc/ntp.conf

there appeared an error message

13 Jul 16:55:10 ntpd[11162]: refclock_ppsapi: time_pps_create: Bad file number

And this is the  part of debug messages with 
/usr/local/libexec/ntpd -D 8

refclock_ioctl: TIOCSPPS failed:: Invalid argument
13 Jul 17:05:56 ntpd[27590]: refclock_ppsapi: time_pps_create: Invalid argument

What should I check to enable ATOM module?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
