if you want to remote control your freerunner over dbus you can use gabriel
[1] which is a dbus proxy over ssh.
if you want to forward you serial connection over tcp you can use a
forwarder written by alphaone [2].
I think if you want to expose you modem over a bluetooth connection, some
extra work is required.
