10.4: Share a serial port with Windows on Parallels
Authored by: kentompkins3 on May 04, '08 01:28:30PM

I tried this suggestion with 10.5.2 and the latest build of Parallels and it didn't work. I'm trying to connect a Windows/serial program to an amateur radio. I've installed the Windows drivers for the USB --> Serial cable, etc. but still can't get it to work.

I think, as a result, EchoMac does not work now on the Mac side. It did work before I used SerialClient and doesn't now. Is it possible that SerialClient has set something that affects the EchoMac program? EchoMac is a ham radio program on the Mac that allows connections to a repeater.

I'm baffled why using Parallels with a USB --> Serial adapter creates so many problems and whether using SerialClient has done something to my Internet ports?
