Actually the manual is moot on any sort of remote control. The RS-232 section refers you to an insert 
in the back of the manual. I’d guess that the 488 stuff was done the same way. 

Nasty question: Are you sure you have the 488 option installed?  It would not be the first piece of gear 
produced that never really got a 488 firmware version …..

The 9700AT is a 1U time generator and translator with slots in the back that can accept option cards with various functionalities such as -488 and RS-232 interfaces, GPIO, and tape searches.  What I need is the character strings to output the time for the -488 interface.  The manual for the unit is here: http://www1.symmetricom.com/media/files/support/ttm/product-manual/man-9700at-9710.pdf
