Operating System Compatibility
The hopf clock driver has been tested on the following software and hardware platforms:
O/S Serial Port Configuration
The driver attempts to open the device
X is the NTP refclock unit number as defined by the LSB of the refclock address. Valid refclock unit numbers are 0 - 3.
The user is expected to provide a symbolic link to an available serial port device. This is typically performed by a command such as:
ln -s /dev/ttyS0 /dev/hopfclock0
Windows NT does not support symbolic links to device files.
COMx is used by the driver, based on the refclock unit number, where unit 1 corresponds to
COM1 and unit 3 corresponds to
Specifies the time offset calibration factor, in seconds and fraction, with default 0.0. Should be set to 20 milliseconds to correct serial line and operating system delays incurred in capturing time stamps from the synchronous packets.
Specifies the driver reference identifier,
flag1 0 | 1
When set to 1, driver syncs even if only crystal driven.
As specified in clock manual in section “Data String for NTP (Network Time Protocol)”.
