Use ppp. At each end, put this in /etc/ppp/ttyS0 (assuming you use ttyS0
at both ends):
# The first ip below is the local ip, the second the remote.
# Thus they should be in opposite order on the two machines.
# Uncomment this only on the 'client' machine.
Start pppd on each end with 'pppd ttyS0'. Everything will now work just as
if you had a pair of ethernet cards set up.
