GNU Screen on OSX to Socket

ecuguru asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-08
Trying to redirect a serial port output (as read only) to a socket.
The goal would be to telnet to it, and be able to read what is being output from the serial port.

The serial port is readable (for instance)
screen /dev/tty.usbserial-abcde 19200

But I can't find a way to pipe it to netcat or anything to be a socket server..
