There is a FreeBSD box with several RS232 ports. Can those ports be
accessed by Windows hosts over the network? Actually, does anyone
have a success story for such a scenario?

There is some software like comms/serialoverip, comms/tits etc but are
there any (freeware) Windows virtual COM port drivers compatible

Maybe some Windows drivers for hardware console servers (like Moxa)
would work with tits etc?

Thanks a lot for any advice.
