local Lan to emulate amiga local connection ?

Hello Tony,
do you think it could be possible to connect 2 or more pc in a local lan to simulate the old amiga connections for games like with the port printer ??
A kind of local kaillera ?? No problem of latency in this case i suppose ??
Or perhaps is it already possible ???

What software, specifically, would benefit from this? The use cases.

If it does get done then it would be great if the "local" LAN could look like a local connection to the Amiga side of things but in reality it could be a virtual connection with the respective machines being on any IP address on the internet.

You could make a porting AROS OS3 RDesktop and maybe connect Remote Desktop with Windows or Amiga systems (if that were even possible with Amiga). I enclose my old image where IcAROS run into a Remote Desktop System Win XP. Many years ago they connect my AMiGA (A4000 e 1200) with ParNET through the Parallel port.

I had some plans (some parts were already done years ago) but as usual, testing anything that needs multiple instances was too painful. And as usual part 2, many serial link games need stable and especially 100% constant extreme low latency.
