External Clock usage on a msp430 dev tool kit

    I'm currently working with a MSP430F417x micro controller development kit. I need to drive the microcontroller with an external clock with a frequency of 10Mhz, the datasheets and other manuals don't exactly specify how I can go about with this, although there is a connextion on the board which says XTCLK.

    The 10Mhz signal is generated from an external frequency sysnthesiser which has a coax output.

    I grealy appreciate any thoughts on this one especially if anyone has done something similar.
