I'm sending traffic to the cisco. Cisco is already configured. I just want
to see how the cisco is handling the data it is receiving from the linux
serial device. So it is just a test data i'm sending from the linux box
through the cisco.

OK. I'm sending serial traffic from serial devices over an IP network. So
the cisco will receive the serial stream on its serial port and 'wrap it
with' IP to the destination cisco. The destination cisco will then unwrap
the packets and deliver serial via its serial port to another serial device.
What I want to do is to monitor the IP packets in the cisco to figure out
sizes of the wrapped packets. That's all.
So I just wand to generate some serial traffic from the linux box into the
cisco, and I needa simple linux command to help me with that. A fried
suggested I could use cat filename > serial port. But both he and I don't
know the correct syntax.
