Yea, I don't think you can do that. What comes out of the GFX is serial comm and there's no way of changing that.
Couple thing you have to keep in mind. The comm settings in the terminal software are important. They have to match the GFX. If I remember right the baud rate is 9600. Select anything else and it won't work.
Also you need a straight through cable. A nulled cable won't work.
I know all this because I've done it. I brought the GFX specifically for this feature. I don't know if it ever helped me, but it looked real cool.
