Yes, ser2net does it's job for small "desktop" setups, but it cannot
beat a terminal server in a larger lab.

ser2net would be nice if 1) it would provide ssh instead of telnet
connections, and 2) allow to map boards to names instead of port

In any case, it does not scale for any larger lab; assume you would
want to replace the terminal servers in our Gröbenzell lab by
ser2net - there are more than 110 boards there...

Best regards,
