    In the RDP client software, if you click on [Options] button, then go to the Local Resources Tab, there is a checkbox for "Serial Ports" to allow your remote session use of your local com ports.  All you would have to do then (if possible) is tell the application to use that com port.  Some applications might not like it.....and might require that the COM1 be redirected to it, there are several applications that can redirect the COM1 to the virtual COM from the local computer.....

    Post back with which way you want to is possible to also do this through scripting...
