What is the best way to tunnel rs232 serial port over internet?

I have a remote time clock that connects to a serial port on a pc.  I need the timeclock and the pc to be in different locations.  I am looking to convert the rs232 to ethernet and then go through router/broadband/router to pc location and the convert back to serial.  What would be the best way to do this or is there a better alternative?

hmmm.....Just how much distance?  Is it in the same building (maybe use shorthaul modems), on the same floor (seral port extenders, or further apart than that?

yeah, that is what i'm going to have to go with I think.  I have found a cheaper version that should work.  I was just hoping there was a better way.
