[alsa-devel] redirecting audio to another desktop machine

Hi list,

I have an embedded device running linux kernel and a minimal filesystem.

I want to access this device remotely which means I should be able to connect to the device just like we do Remote Desktop over ethernet.
I am able to do this. I am able to send key-event and framebuffer data whenever my desktop machine connects to the device.

But, I am not able to send audio data on remote side.
I am really not sure which device file (/dev/snd/ ???) I should read and capture the data and should send across....
Or can I read the playback device ? I think NO.
Do I need to create some kind of virtual sound device ?

Any pointers/suggestions are appreciated.
