Ticket #3120 (closed defect: fixed)
Serial ports doesn't work on Solaris hosts => fixed in SVN
|Reported by:||Tipo874||Owned by:|
I noticed that the Changelog for 2.1.2 says that serial ports are now fixed on solaris hosts. Sadly it appears to be just half true. I have tried with both a win XP client and an OpenSolaris client, and neither of them are able to use the external Edgeport USB-serial dongle that works fine on the host OS.
I have looped all relevant signals so that whatever data is sent on TxD will be received on RxD, and when I run "tip -9600 /dev/cua/1" on the host, whatever I type is echoed to the screen. If I try the same with hyperterm in Win XP or "tip -9600 /dev/cua/a" on the OpenSolaris client, nothing shows up on the screen.
- Version changed from VirtualBox 2.1.2 to VirtualBox 2.2.2
- Summary changed from Serial ports doesn't work on Solaris hosts, even with 2.1.2 to Serial ports doesn't work on Solaris hosts => fixed in SVN
