RFC 868 timeserver for freebsd

Hi list,

I recently installed a few SNMP interfaces to monitor some UPS modules 
in our network, and these interfaces require a timeserver to syncronize 
their clocks. I have tried the ntpd in FreeBSD 4.9 as well as msntp from 
ports, but none of them work with these interfaces.

According to the manufacturer, the interfaces requires a timeserver that 
supports the RFC 868 protocoll, which ntpd and msntp doesnt seem to do. 
I've found several references to RFC's in the manpage of ntpd, however, 
it does not mention 868.

Does anyone know of a timeserver supporting the RFC 868 protocoll that 
runs on FreeBSD or possibly linux?
