Perhaps you can answer something that's been bugging me for some time.
How does this actually work? I mean, what gets sent over the wire when
you redirect a serial port?
It's always bugged me that there's not much information about how this
is done, and it seems to use a bit too much magic for my liking. I
mean, is it TCP? Can you restrict access to it with a firewall? How
does it share the network card with the host OS, in the cases where you
use the one NIC for both?
