Hi :

Check for "Device Server" at search engines.

Some vendors provide virtual comm ports or comm port redirection software
for Windows/Linux.

It is good if the legacy NM software running on a server talks only to com
ports for control or data acqusition.

The serial port at remote end appears to the NM software as local.
