on Red Hat Enterprise Linux

ser2net-plars

Paul Larson (pwlars)

ser2net - Serial port to network proxy

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

Example usage: $ 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
