How to redirect serial port PCI with 2 ports in a Citrix session?


Hi, I have a serial port PCI with 2 ports, I’m trying to redirect them in a citrix session. The one integrated in the mainboard is redirected sucessfully, but the PCis don’t. Any advice?


are the PCI ones recognized on client side? What does lspci say?


18:05.0 Serial controller: Oxford Semiconductor Ltd OX16PCI952 (Dual 16950 UART)

How can I identify each port? I have a serial printer , maybe sending some data to each port?


Ok, when you redirect, I hope you mean mapping, right? Is there a way to disable the Mainboard Com Port in Bios and see if the PCI ones are then mapped? I have seen some priorization issues…


Ok I have resolved that one, but I have a multiport serial pci with 2 ports, they are recognized by the OS, but when I make a simple test as echo “hola” > /dev/ttyS0

the commadn line gets waiting and nothing happens, ideas??


How did you resolved it? On the new stuff, did you played a bit around with the baud/transfer rate etc?


setserial -g /dev/ttyS[0123] here you have all the info about the serial ports, I have 3 one of the in the mainboard, the working one. The others are in a PCI card.

I was playing with baud rates, but without doing anything in the port integrated it works fine.
