Are you sure you want to do that? gpsd is designed in a way to be
possible to get gps data over the network. And fso-gpsd can do that

Just connect FR and laptop in some way (USB/BT/Wifi) and you're done.

If you really want to forward serial port, you can use socat for that.

Be free, use free ( software!
