I don't have access to the TCP development kit, so I haven't tried, but...
My understanding is that SCO 3 doesn't implement clock fine adjustment in
any form which is understandable to the standard xntp code. In particular,
tickadj is effectively of the order of 10,000, as it can only drop and add
whole ticks, not modify the length of a tick, as assumed by xntpd. As xntpd
is expecting a tickadj of around 5, 10,000 may easily be considered
Note that you will also need to apply a kernel patch, as reposted in the
last couple of weeks, to disable the synch to time of day function in the
kernel (cf. tickadj -s on SunOS).
With the patch, the NTP V2 code, supplied by SCO, keeps reasonable time,
although with poor resolution.
