Nope, seems to be the opposite.

In OP's context, I'd try to check whether the application he wants to
use could be configured to access a remote device over ip (the manual
talks about connections to remote weather stations).

Generally, is there any way to create a virtual serial device that would
be backed by a userland daemon implementing rfc2217 for example ?
