  • Esxi and modem serie

    hello every body

    firstly sorry for my english, i'm french.

    here is my problem.

    I installed ESXi with two virtual machines.
    Windows 2003 and a Linux.

    I need to install on my Windows a Olitec modem in port series.
    But I cannot use physical serial port on the host
    Be-you it possible to install a modem series on ESXi?

    if somebody has a solution, it would be quite cool.
