Question Serial Console-redirect to another PC


Here is the situation.
I have 2 PC's with Slackware Linux. With 2 monitors, 2 keyboards, etc. But in most of the time I am working with the first PC. So, every time i need to make some configuration changes, I am starting ssh, entering password. The second Linux box is acting like a firewall/router. I would like to control and redirect output from this linux box to serial line., so the other PC can capture and display the output.
The seconfd thing I want to do is to manage my Linux router through serial line.
Do you have any ideas where should I start my research, what kind of documents should I read to make this possible ?

Thank You in advance for your answers.
Regards

I know it's a five year old post. I have written a step-by-step guide to redirect console output to serial port here.

Hope it helps somebody.

Thanks
