Maybe this thread on daemonforums.org contains a hint of the options you have:

I had an email from the author of netfwd to let me know that it doesn't support pty. He recommended I try socat, which worked perfectly!

 # socat GOPEN:/dev/ptyp0,ignoreeof TCP:10.0.1.93:10002

Then point the application at /dev/ttyp0
