I'm running Linux VM guest on VMware ESXi 5.1 host. The guest has only serial tty. The only way to interact with it seems to be serial over named pipe. I've added serial port to the VM, assigning pipe name, near end=server and far end=process. I expected that some named pipe should be created on vmware host and I will be able to connect somehow... Nothing is created however (tried find ./ -name pipename).
How can I connect to the named pipe, is it created?
( there are also other options for serial port: readonly "output file" and "use network" not available in free ESXi)
