Serial Interfaces on ESXI Virtual Machine - Windows Server
Posted on 2013-01-06
We recently converted our Server 2008 R2 from Physical to Virtual and added it to our VMware EXSI machine.
This server is use to run our hotel's PMS (Property Management System) which needs to connect to 4 serial interfaces (Voicemail, movie server, PBX, and Call accounting system located at the Hotel)
Since the Server will be offsite, we need to find a way to connect the serial interfaces to a devices and run the serial connection over IP to our Virtual Server.
The PMS can't communicate over IP, so we need a software than can simulate a physical serial port so we can point the PMS to those ports.
How do you guys deal with serial devices, if your server is in the cloud?
