Serial Connection forward over LAN

I don't have a lot of money, so I can't afford a nice serial port server.  I was wondering if the open source community has created software that allows you to use a computer equipped with a NIC and a RS-232 Serial port to forward communication of the serial port over TCP/IP.

It would be a real life saver if someone knew how to do this.  It would be even better if they created a driver for win32 to access the port hosted on a linux machine.

I hope someone figures this out.

Perhaps this article:


can help you out.  There is mention of an open-source project as a serial-port concentrator that you can find at the bottom of the article.
