Hello guruís,

I have a Linus base system with a windows7 in a virtual box.

I am trying to get the windows system to see the serial port on the computer (/dev/ttyS0).

I have done a chmod to make the /dev/ttyS0 accessible to all users (ie me).

In virtual box I have enabled COM1 and piped it to /dev/ttyS0 yet applications do not see the serial port.

I am at a loss what to do next.

Any pointers?

Thanks for looking in.
