This can easily be done with the -Loop feature (it's in the manual)

If you do not have PCMCIA slots, then with one serial port the only thing
you can do is to network the computers using the -Loop feature.  To use
this, you will need to build a set of Y-cables, as I have yet to find a
Y-cable that does the trick.

If you have PCMCIA slots, you can add in extra COM ports so you can also
have radio control, packet input etc.

But for M/S, the most critical thing is to have the logs in synch so you
know which mults to chase.... so use your one COM port for networking.
