I know, the word serial is confusing, what I meant is that the USB connection
(which could be a mass-storage, camera, etc) is in my case serial (ie rs232)

yes, but it's not relevant to what I'm looking for, I want to send/receive
the USB protocol over IP. I only mentioned the serial (rs232) because I don't
need speed (as opposed to a camera, audio, etc)
