serial terminal direct connection to remote host at login

i have some 4.10 systems with local connected serial terminals. now the
problem is, that the terminal should connect to a remote host when they
are switched on and prompt for the login at the romote host.

the way of loging in at the local host and then do a telnet to
remote-host is not a real good solution, because all users have to enter
their password twice and furthermore all users have to be created on the
local system with the terminals too.

is there any way to hardwire the terminal to a remote host? i already
searched all of the ttys aso man pages, but had no luck findig a

many thanks,

best regards,
