I have not tested it yet, but if anyone is interested I was able to compile TCPSer on my Mac. There appears to be a prebuilt Windows binary as well.
tcpser - emulate a Hayes compatible modem
tcpser -d dev -s speed [-l log_level -t tracing_options] ...
tcpser -v port [-l log_level -t tracing_options] ...
This manual page documents briefly the tcpser command.
tcpser turns a PC serial port into an emulated Hayes compatible modem
that uses TCP/IP for incoming and outgoing connections. It can be used
to allow older applications and systems designed for modem use to
operate on the Internet. tcpser supports all standard Hayes commands,
and understands extended and vendor proprietary commands (though it
does not implement many of them). tcpser can be used for both inbound
and outbound connections.
A summary of options is included below.
-h Show summary of options.
-p Port to listen on (defaults to 6400).
-t Trace flags: (can be combined)
s modem input
S modem output
i IP input
I IP output
-l Log level: 0 (NONE), 1 (FATAL) - 7 (DEBUG_X) (defaults to 0).
-L Log file (defaults to stderr).
The following can be repeated for each modem desired (-s, -S, and -i
will apply to any subsequent device if not set again):
-d Serial device (e.g. /dev/ttyS0). Cannot be used with -v
-v TCP port for VICE RS232 (e.g. 25232). Cannot be used with -d
-s Serial port speed (defaults to 38400).
-S Speed modem will report (defaults to -s value).
-I Invert DCD pin.
-n Add phone entry (number=replacement).
-a Filename to send to local side upon answer.
-A Filename to send to remote side upon answer.
-c Filename to send to local side upon connect.
-C Filename to send to remote side upon connect.
-N Filename to send when no answer.
-B Filename to send when modem(s) busy.
-T Filename to send upon inactivity timeout.
-i Modem init string (defaults to `', leave off `at' prefix when
-D Direct connection (follow with hostname:port for caller, : for
