network based console?

Right now my stdin and stdout operations go in/out the serial port.
However, my serial port *must* go away since it is multiplexed with a
more essential function that replaces it. However, my ethernet tcp/ip is
working well now. Is it possible to setup a remote terminal using tcp/ip
that will act as stdin/stdout for my board running rtems? This would
mainly be for debug or control purposes and probably not kept in the
In the past, I have used syslog to record debug messages on a remote
system (output only) via UDP. I see mention of a telnetd for rtems that
might allow me to connect to the rtems board but not sure that the
remote telnet terminal functions the same as the remote serial terminal
(ie, gtkterm, minicom, etc), i.e., printf's output to it and keystroke
are input back to rtems.
I expect this is all bound in with termios and the console driver and
network driver but not sure how it all ties together or if what I want
is possible. I will keep looking. But any advance information or
comments would be appreciated.
