Perhaps I did not make myself clear (I've had a bunch of people saying,
"You... Not using Linux? Huh?", "Why don't you use Linux as a serial port
server?" and other such things). Well, that's the point!

[ Windows Boxes ]  -- IP -->  [ Linux Box ]  -- Serial --> Modem --> World

So, the Linux box will be doing serial port sharing via IP, but it's Windows
client machines that need to use the interface. I still haven't found a Free
Software solution to this; any pointers very welcome.
