Re: ATM 8510 AUX console on RP & NTP protocol

The code that supports that function fell out of maintenance years ago, and not all IOS devices have it. Very few customers took advantage of it, and maintaining the code to ensure the high accuracy on the serial port was very hard work.

As a result, ongoing support on new platforms was largely discontinued.

If the "ntp refclock" commands exist under the AUX port, it is supported, otherwise it is not.

And also, only a few devices are supported, those that were existing back when the code was created. I don't know if modern GPS devices speak that same serial protocol these days.
