Are there any plans to introduce a virtual serial interface much like the one available for modems now? It would be very useful to be able to link the serial connection to an internet address and port much like the modem can be. Some games currently available don't work with the modem emulation code available in Dosbox at the moment and it would be useful to have this option as a backup.
It would work by simply including the IP address and port information in the configuration files, and for access on the command-line. Then the same data transfer code as is implemented for the modem could probably be used for TCP/IP transfers.
What do you all think?
