Exclamation Com port on Ubuntu accessible to remote Win Pc via Network

I am essentially trying to have a serial device connect to my ubuntu machine via the com port, and forward that comport over the network to a windows box so that I can configure/access the device.

I have looked into socat/ sredird but still haven't found an option that I can get to work.

Any insight would be great.

I know this has been done a million times in days long ago. I just can't find what I am looking for.

This is an unknown product that I think does what you want but I am sure I have seen what you want 20 years ago.

It must be some very simple and primitive solution since it is such an old thing. Like some kermit or xmodem/zmodem deal.
