This daemon allows telnet and tcp sessions to be established with a
host's serial ports. Combined with a terminal emulator, this can be a
very simple means to configure network devices or other equipment with
a serial port. This is remarkably similar to the reverse telnet
feature of some Cisco routers.
You will need to connect the raw-usb interface using:
$ sudo snap connect ser2net-plars:raw-usb
*note: If you are on classic and don't have a gadget with support for
the serial-port interface, you should install with --classic
$ ser2net-plars.config-get > ser2net.yaml
<edit the config>
$ cat /tmp/ser2net.yaml |sudo /snap/bin/ser2net-plars.config-set
$ sudo snap restart ser2net-plars.ser2net

Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.
Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.
Snap is available for Linux Mint 18.2 (Sonya), Linux Mint 18.3 (Sylvia), and the latest releases, Linux Mint 19 (Tara) and Linux Mint 19.1 (Tessa).
You can find out which version of Linux Mint you’re running by opening System info from the Preferences menu. To install snap from the Software Manager application, search for snapd and click Install.
