I was able to make this conversion with an ACE-III module (thanks Jason!).
I am a bit fuzzy on the details now and my notebooks are packed away in some
random box, but I do recall that it was important to set the ACE-III to
speak the right protocol -- TSIP, IIRC. There may have been an issue with
speed as well. A logic analyzer on the TS's Tx pin was helpful. I have a
vague memory of sending out a note about my successful conversion, so you
may want to check the archives.
What I am certain of is that Symmetricom is not going to be of any help.
Abandon all hope there.
