Is this anything like rtty, which is a package? We don't use rtty here,
but we have tested it and if I were starting over it'd be my choice.

Rtty is "remote tty" (not radioteletype). You run a server per port
and then connect to that server from any number of "tip"/"cu"-like
clients. I wrote it for our console concentrator, but there's no
reason other than performance why you couldn't use it to drive modems,
printers, prom programmers, and so on.
