I am looking for a way to use a remote serial port on a linux machine over LAN. The machine is running ubuntu 10.04 and I have a arduino board connected to it, that I would like to be able to reprogram or listen/talk to serial output of it over LAN.
It would be great if the client software would be platform indepented but linux only client would be ok too.
There are some programs like that for windows: http://www.hw-group.com/products/hw_vsp/index_en.html http://www.serial-port-communication.com/serial-over-tcpip/ (this appears to have a linux version to, but its not open source...)
And finally actually wikipedia has some useful notes and references: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/COM_port_redirector
