I needed to test serial communication between two VirtualBox guest machines on Linux. This tutorial describes what I did to set up a serial port between two virtual machines running on VirtualBox.

  • My host operating system was Ubuntu 10.10
  • My guest operating systems were Microsoft Windows XP and Debian Lenny.

On the host machine you don't need to install or configure anything.

On guest virtual machines you need to configure serial port settings.
