COM port option: Emulate analog modems between host pipe and guest

Description (last modified by vushakov) (diff)

The idea is to ultimately attach to a named pipe or device, but to emulate a pair of analog modems such as HAYES-compatibles bridging the COM port through which the serial connection is made.

Named pipes/devices do a lot by enabling serial communications with the guest, but one thing they can't do is communicate with guest applications that are expecting to receive modem calls.

Well, we are definitely not going to implement this ourselves. Too much work. Interesting suggestion, but we have many more significantly more important features to work on.

We are open to external contributions of course.
