I am having a difficult time trying to access a serial port on VirtualBox. My Guest OS is Windows XP and the host environment is Linux Ubuntu 10.04.
The serial modem device works perfectly in Ubuntu. I can communicate with it via cutecom or just sending plain echo messages to it like so:
echo "id" > /dev/ttyS2
Ubuntu Settings and config
I have added my user account to the following group: dialout and have set the serial using the following command: sudo setserial /dev/ttyS2 but still no luck when trying to access it in my Guest OS.
Heres the settings I use to configure the serial port in VirtualBox:
* Port Mode : Host Device * Port Number : User - Defined (IRQ = 17, I/O Port = 0xEC00) * Port/File Path : /dev/ttyS2
I have tried all the different port modes even disconnected but still no luck. I have consulted the manual aswell but nothing works. What could be wrong? Is it virtualbox or are my ubuntu settings configured incorrectly?
