[CentOS] TCP port to TTY/Serial Port?

I'm trying to configure my system such that I have a TCP port listening which will send all data it receives to a serial port.
ie: tcp/2112 --> /dev/ttyS0
My goal would be to be able to:
Use netcat to create the listen and redirect to a serial port:
$ nc -l 2112 > /dev/ttyS0
Then in another window, run minicom at /dev/ttyS0
Then in a 3rd window,
$ telnet localhost 2112
"Type things, hello world"
But, I can never get the text to show up in the minicom window.
I read different variations on the netcat command, including:
$ nc -l 2112 <> /dev/ttyS0
$ nc -l 2112 > /dev/ttyS0 < /dev/ttyS0
But none seem to do the trick.
Anyone have any ideas on what I'm missing here?
Any help would be great.
