Hello all,

Does anybody know how can I share character device over the network?

I know how to share block devices: GNBD, AoE and so on.
But have no clues about sharing character devices, like /dev/ttyS0 for example.

I'm aware of
but I want to find other possible solutions.

This task is related to Xen U-domains live migration.

Thank you for any ideas.

Umm. Why would you *want* to, with Kermit and SSH available?

Nico, I can't understand how can SSH help me in the situation?

Please, clarify your idea for me.
My apologies, I misunderstood your use. I thought you were simply trying to reach a serial port on the remote machine. If so, why can't you SSH to the remote machine and use Kermit or a similar tool to access it from the remote machine? Or do you really need that serial port accessible directly over your local network, for some reason?
