Windows 7: Fax/Dial-up modem

25 Jul 2010   #1

Fax/Dial-up modem

Anyone set up a fax/dial up modem to be used only in a virtual machine and not in the host machine?

How can i go about this?

Im aware that the virtual machine cannot communicate directly with hardware.. Atleast to my knowledge.

In theory, it's possible, just like USB devices can be assigned to a vm, and not used by host. So a modem can be assigned to a vm.

In practice, it seems no virtualizer emulates modem, so it's out of luck, unless someone implements that.

I have put the modem on COM3. In the VM i created a serial port assigned to COM3; so shouldnt I be seeing the Modem in the VM machine?
