Allows network connections to serial ports

This daemon allows telnet and tcp sessions to be established with a unit's serial ports. Combined with a terminal emulation like xterm or the Linux console, this can be a very simple means of communicating with routers, other systems' serial consoles and other equipment with a serial port. This is remarkably similar to the reverse telnet feature of some Cisco routers.

parameters), but you must have a compliant client.  The only one I
know of is kermit (

  ser2net now supports RFC 2217, the ability to control the serial
  port with telnet options.  So, for instance, you can connect to a
  ser2net session with a client that has this option and control
  the baud rate, stopbits, parity, etc.  The only client I know of
  that supports this is c-kermit, available at
