I have an embedded board and it is having a web server running. Unfortunately, it has only a serial port (network port is not enabled). Is there a way where I can access the web server using s browser from a Linux PC(connected using a serial interface)?. I could see many ways to do the reverse(make serial available over the network) but not this one.

Thanks, RL

    you can use slip. See the details in my answer here – meuh Mar 24 '18 at 12:53

You can use PPP (Point-to-point Protocol) to send and receive IP packets over the serial line. This requires setting up a PPP Daemon (pppd) on both ends. PPP over serial lines was used when connecting to the Internet using modems. You can find lots of tutorials on-line.
