Description

The Set-VMComPort cmdlet configures the COM port of a virtual machine.

Examples

Example 1

PS C:\> Set-VMComPort TestVM 2 \\.\pipe\TestPipe

Configure the second COM port on virtual machine TestVM to connect to named pipe TestPipe on the local computer.

Note

This does not create the named pipe on the local computer. You will have to write your own application to create a named pipe.
