He has to use a null-modem cable. The wires sending and receiving data
are fixed, so one cannot change these using software.
To the original poster:
Did you plan to run a getty/login on the serial link?
That would be messy, since login on system A will writing
data to login on system B and vice versa. I think creating
a PPP link between the two and using IP is the way to go.
