I have a dual serial RS232 port to Ethernet converter. I need to run 2 
minicom session on a machine that will talk via two virtual serial 
ports, then over IP to the converter. I understand that there is a 
common standard for doing this and thus I hope that the hardware I have 
supports this standard. I cannot locate the Linux drivers or how to 
create and install such a virtual serial port.  Any suggestions?
