I am using Fedora 12 and VirtualBox 3.1.2. My guest OS is Windows XP. How to add a serial port which will be 'physically' connected to /dev/ttyUSB0?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

This is all set out in the VirtualBox documentation. Particularly online or in the pdf. Essentially run VirtualBox and go,

(VM name) > Settings > Serial Ports > Enable port > connect to device

And add the name of your device. Be careful about file permissions.

If you're running headless, I think you can do it through VBoxManage modifyvm.
