How to move External Serial Fax/Modem from IBM Concentrator to Serial Port on back of server

We have an IBM 520 p5 Server with AIX 5.3.

I am looking for a way to move our External serial fax/modem from our Concentrator (tty3), to one of the serial ports on the back of the server, trying to eliminate the Concentrator all together.  The Fax/Modem will only be used for outgoing faxes (no incoming calls).

I want to move the fax/modem to port T2 (T1 has a dumb terminal attached), currently the T2 port is assigned to the Parent Adapter 'vsa2', and looks like it is setup for a dumb terminal also.

Is this even possible?  If so, what are the steps I need to take to move the fax/modem from the concentrator port to the T2 serial port on the back of the server?
