serial ports problem
|Reported by:||IakovK||Owned by:|
I am using VirtualBox 1.5.6 (VirtualBox_1.5.6-1_Win_x86.msi) on Windows XP. Guest system is Windows Server 2003 from en_windows_server_2003_with_sp1_enterprise.iso (MSDN). I configured virtual machine to have com port on Host Pipe, but it doesn't seem to work. When I look at guest's Device Manager, it shows no ports at all; when I look at its Resources view, it doesn't show serial port resources as used (standard COM1). I added COM2 to use physical port, and result is the same. On the other hand, when I run Process Explorer on host, it shows both handles as open by VirtualBox process.
So, the question is: how to have serial ports work? I really need only pipe (to connect WinDbg).
