HI all, I hope this is the right place to post this. I am running OS11.2. I have a couple of items that are old school Serial devices. I am unable to figure out how to get OS to recognize and allow me to use these. The software for them are windows apps. So I’d need to use a Virtual windows Which I’ve installed to Win4lin, Virtual Box,Parallels and Crossover. But since OS doesn’t see/recognize the serial ports I can’t use me devises.
Can someone tell me how to activate the serial ports on my machine?
I found the following link for virtual box:
How To Use Host Serial Port From Guest In VirtualBox « Software, Tools, Tips, Tricks
In openSUSE the device names /dev/tty0 = COM1, /dev/tty1 = COM2 and so forth. It is a stretch normally to address hardware directly from a virtual session, but perhaps the link above will tell you how to do it.
Thanks, I’ll give it a try,.
Happy to help Ron. If you get it to work, come back by and post another message of your success as others might want to know how to do this as well.
Ahh shucks. It didn’t work. I’ll try again later.
