Thanks Matthew for your reply. My 'man ntpd' page gives the -A option to turn off authentication: -A Disable authentication mode (http://www.Google.com/search?q=%22-A+Disable+authentication+mode%22) As far as I can tell, there is no way to enable authentication using Tardis. I was hoping that there would be a simple solution utilizing Tardis, since it works great on Windows.
