Socket connection over serial link

We want to be able to dial up a machine, do a quick username/password authentication, then establish a TCP/IP connection over the modem to transfer info via socket.

Since this is windows ( in some cases linux ) box, leveraging RAS might be an issue (presumably this would require some JNI work). Can you provide any thoughts/direction on this?

1. Windows/linux ... connecting to RAS(windows)
2. first connect using serial port to the ras server i.e java comm api.
3. then socket over serial port ....??? how do i direct the socket client to connect to the ip over serial link..

The application installed on the Windows Environment (RAS) communicates only through the TCP port 6969.
I agree. Here's the link:
