Hyper-V Server 2012 - Redirect COM port to VM

Hi All

Hope someone can help me. I have a server running with Hyper-V Server 2012 with a Windows VM running on it.

I need to be able to redirect the physical COM port of the server to my VM.

How does one go about doing that?

I suggest to use a device that redirect serial connection over ethernet, often I used Moxa NPort device in VM

We've used USB to Serial converters that in turn get redirected into the VM using Fabulatech's USB over Ethernet product.

ATEN makes a good USB to Serial adapter that we've used to program anything from Intel Modular Servers through to Cisco switches.
