Using the 8163A Lightwave Multimeter for Ultrafast laser

I am looking to view the pulse width and rep rate of a Polaronyx femtosecond laser.  I have read that you can do this with an oscilloscope.  My plan was to couple the monitor fiber of the laser to the 8163A power meter module.  Then use analog BNC connection to connect the 8163A to our o-scope.  Currently I cannot see any power reading on the 8163A even though the laser is running.  


I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with a similar type of setup to view pulse information of an ultra fast laser using these tools.


Thank you!
