    I can't find a Linux client for ser2net capable of controlling the port parameters (speed, parity, etc) trough RFC2217.

    I tried cyclades-serial-client (the only one I could find) which in theory should be RFC2217 compliant and aware of the port parameters change on the client tty, but is never able to make ser2net change the parameters on the server.

    I don't know if its a bug on ser2net or cyclades-serial-client RFC2217 implementation but I tried to connect with HW-VSP from a windows virtual machine and that proprietary software is able to control ser2net port speed.

    Do you know any software for Linux which creates a virtual tty device and is able to pass parameters such as baud rate to ser2net?

    I use ser2net in an openwrt router to access a remote device that needs one baud rate in operation but another for configuration and so I need to change the port speed on the fly.

      The CKU kermit program has rfc2217 capability, that's how I test. But
      it doesn't make a virtual tty. The cyclades client is the only other
      one I have ever heard of, but I have not tried it.
