Stupid DOS tricks-redirecting console

Hello, all:

        It's been a long time since I've banged around pure DOS, so I can't
remember all of its tricks. Here's what I want to do. I want to occasionally
hook a terminal to a small 486 SBC/data collector which is running
"headless." I seem to remember that the console I/O can be redirected to a
COM port with a command like "MODE COM1:=CON" or something like that. I'm
not at home now, so I can't try it, but am I on the right track? Will that
redirect both screen and keyboard I/O?
