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

a serial port. This is remarkably similar to the reverse telnet

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
