I've got an iRobot Create with BAM (Bluetooth Adapter Module), and I'm trying to get RealTerm, which is a serial Terminal, to not only send serial commands from the wine emulation to my real system, but to get those serial commands to be sent over bluetooth to a specific device, and have the input from that device be relayed back to RealTerm.

Probably the easiest way would be to use a Mac serial terminal, but I don't know of any, and I don't know if any can edit bluetooth data.  Any suggestions?
You'll have to work with your Mac to find out which serial device the 
Bluetooth is showing up as and then map that to a com port in Wine.
