Does the Paramount MyT interface to the computer (USB) appear to the PC as a local serial port? 

Presuming a PC to be located at the mount, connected to the MyT, can a serial port to TCP/IP server be used on the PC at the mount to connect via Ethernet to a remote machine running a TCP/IP-serial client software so as to allow the remote computer running TheSkyX to operate the mount.  This would allow the remote control of the mount to be via TheSkyX running on the remote machine with only light Ethernet traffic to the PC at the mount.

Yes.

You might find this Mr. SkyBoxx goes to Winter Star Party blog article of interest.

Most remote users make use Remote Desktop, TeamViewer, or similar. While the mount communications is definitely light, digital imagery is much more significant; the large, raw images can be stored remotely (at the telescope) and retrieved later. But certain tasks, such as determining the astrometric solution for an image (needed for TheSkyX's Closed Loop Slew function, for instance), require the raw image. By using a remote desktop solution to operate TheSkyX Professional Edition on the remote computer, such data-intensive functions can be performed at the site without the need of potentially even larger amounts of data being transferred over the Ethernet/Internet connection, and the associated delays.
