I'm working on a MacBook Pro under mountain lion and I would like to mount serial device connected (/dev/ttyUSBx) on a Linux PC under Ubuntu 12.10 through SSH.

I tried with sshfs to mount /dev (linux) on my mac but I don't have permission for serial port.

Is there a way I can create on my Mac fake serial port?
