Thanks for the reply.  I am trying to emulate a Cisco 2511 or equivalent.  Searching through the mailing-lists I found ser2net and it is working like I need for my situation.

see https://www.conserver.com/pipermail/users/2006-March/msg00033.html,
sounds like the same issue.

well, it's supported in that as long as you chat using the protocol it's
expecting, yes.

oh, and going directly to the higher-numbered port instead of the -p arg
and then using the protocol to find the console may not always work...it
probably will, depending on what the machine is doing, but it's not
guaranteed (and if you edit the config and send a HUP, all bets are

i'd certainly like to know why you're trying to avoid the client, 'cause
if something is lacking, it might be possible to add an enhancement.
but i can imagine edge cases that would require it...

good luck!
