Need 6 serial ports with VMWar workstation

Is it possible to use 6 serial (com) ports in one virtual PC? It looks like 4 is acceptable, but I have a system I want to emulate that has 6 serial ports.

Anyway to "trick" the system?

Thanks for the reply.

Oh well. I was hoping it had increased. I need 6 serial ports for robotic control, the "master" PC that talks to a bunch of instruments in a scientific lab. Six ports would have allowed me to put a test instance of the PC on the physical PC, minimizing swapping of cables, etc.

Thanks again
