  • Hyper-V Com Port

    I have a client that is needing to use a serial device that runs off a Com port. I see in the Hyper-V setting where you can turn on a com port but it's asking for a pipe name which I'm not sure what that is.

    Also is this necessary for a Com port to work?

    Well, tough job ahead, be prepared.
    OOB, Hyper-V does not like working with COM ports. Using your preferred search engine, you can find some workarounds to the issue, like this one.
    BTW, are you using 2008 RTM or 2008R2?

      Personally I prefer the use of a serial to ip device. And for USB devices a USB network server.

        I'm using 2008 R2 Datacenter.

          Can you list some of the devices you have used so I can get an idea what I'm looking at?
