I am currently trying to make a (serial) device on one machine available to a
second machine and have started to play with conserver for this. I can connect
to the serial port in question via console.
Now what I'd like to do is create a local device from this, some kind of

Is this possible ?
And how would one go about ?

(The point is that I want to use a software program that accesses the device 
and I need to tell it via an environment variable where to find it, usually
something a la /dev/ttyS0)

Thanks in advance,
