this question should be asked in the Virtualization forum, here

please press the triangular icon at the bottom of this post to
“Report” it, in the report box ask a moderator to move it to the
virtualization forum…do NOT double post, please

and, by the way, this sure sounds like classroom homework–if so, i’d
suggest you do the research necessary to figure this out without
assistance, you will learn a whole lot more.

CLOSED. Will be moved to Virtualization.

Moved from Development and open again.

I do not understand very well the question. I will say what I have done
in vmware some times, maybe vbox does similarly. And I talk from memory,
I can’t try it now to verify the details.

In the virtualization configuration panel or whatever is called, I
change the simulated hardware of the guest machine, adding a serial
port. However, what it does is “connect” that serial port to a file on
the host, so that whatever the guest sends to the serial port is written
on the external file.

This can be used for kernel and boot debugging of a Linux guest, because
early kernel messages are sent to the serial port, and thus they can be
saved even if the guest system crashes.

I don’t know if it is possible to connect the emulated serial ports of
two guest machines, even less from guest to host. That would be nice,
but if it doesn’t exist there is little chance of it being developed, as
the serial port is on decline.
