Serial and printer ports

Serial and printer port configuration

Serial (and also printer) ports in wine are configurated with Symlinks. Each DOS-device (com1, com2, ... lpt1, lpt2) is represented as a symlink to the device in linux.

To make the symlinks like they are shown in the example image, you have to type:

ln -s /dev/ttyUSB0 com1
ln -s /dev/ttyUSB1 com2
ln -s /dev/lp0 lpt1

in the .wine/dosdevices directoy in your home directory. Of course you have to type your own configuration.

Tip: If you use USB-serial-adaptors, take a look at /var/log/syslog while or after you connected the device (Debian/ubuntu). The log will show you where got device is connected (e.g. /dev/ttyUSB0 -> first serial port running via USB).

You can use the definition direct in your Win-Test.
