I wonder if you have understood my explanations in my original question.

I tried to explain that it's not the Dock that's the problem but that
Blunt does not seem to offer a raw tunnelling option but only a
"modem" option. And a modem option leads to invocation of the modem
setup slip. Why can't Blunt simlpy provide a new connection that looks
like a plain serial access port, similar to the existing serial port?

Understand what I mean?
