Is there a way where I can use my PCI modem in a virtual machine on an ubuntu 12.04 host box? I have installed Ubuntu 12.04 on the host and I want to use my PCI modem on a guest virtual machine. Can this be done using kvm, vmware or virtualbox?
I have tried this http://askubuntu.com/questions/16586/how-to-access-serial-ubuntu-host-serial-port-on-virtualbox-guest-os but i had no luck, I suspect it needs the drivers for the modem installed on the host.
It seems that if i want to use the PCI modem on the guest box without having the drivers on the host box Oracle PCI Passthrough is the eay to go: http://howtoware.blogspot.com/2012/01/oracle-vm-virtualbox-how-to-use-pci.html :-(
