How to configure the serial port of my virtual machine with host machine.


Dear Friends,

I successfully installed the virtual box on my fedora 8 system, and also created a virtual machine with windows xp OS, it works nicely, I try to configure the serial port of my virtual machine and try to configure the path for the port "screen shot are attached" it gives me the error message also the "screen shot are attached" for your review.


Is kind of mistake is going on during the path setting, and how to set the path for configuring the serial port of my virtual machine so that I can use the hyper terminal tool of windows.


Thanks in advanced.


Regards,

Akram.

I have not enabled serial ports in my virtualbox installation, anyway the Port Path looks incorrect. Try to set it either to "COM1" or "/dev/ttyS0" and see if it can find the device. Also be sure the user on the Linux host belongs to the group "tty", among the others.
