GNU Screen: Open a Serial connection within existing session?

Howdy, all;

GNU Screen can multiplex multiple virtual terminals, and can even interface with the serial "TTYSx" .    Starting a new window within a running Screen is "CTRL-A, c".  Starting a new serial connection when invoking screen is as simple as "screen /dev/TTYSx".

But what about starting a connection to a specific serial connection from within a running Screen?    I don't  see this addressed in the man page.

Thanks in advance.

How about now?  The question still hasn't been answered one way or another.

Hello!

It's easy : just do "screen /dev/ttySx" from your current screen terminal, and it will create a new one attached to this serial connection.

By the way, if anyone reads this : I just created my account today to answer this question, but I want to thanks the whole Arch community for all the invaluable help found on all the forum/wiki for years, when searching help for problem, as an user from another distro.
