Ticket #9109 (new enhancement)
There are only 2 serial ports available per virtual machine

It seems that VirtualBox cannot support more than 2 serial ports per virtual machine. This limitation severly hampers the usefulness of VirtualBox for my applications. I run virtualized fax servers that are portable across OSs and connect to external modems through mapped serial ports. For a typical 4 or 8 line fax board, this means I cannot scale the application to fully utilize the available hardware. As far as I know only VMWare supports unlimited serial ports per VM among the competition.
