GSM modem com port and VMWARE ESXi V4.1.0 B348481

Hi,

I have a Dell R310 server which installed the ESXi V4.1 with the latest patch installed. I have a project which needs a Modem to receive SMS.

Modem : Fargo Telecom GSM Modem Fargo Maestro 20

What I need to do

Option 1 via COM port

1. setup a VM using either WindowsXP / Windows2003

2. Attach the Modem to the R310 (com port)

3. Associate the item2 to the VM O/S

4. install the SMS program and connect to the modem in order to receive SMS

Option 2 via USB-to-COM port

1. setup a VM using either WindowsXP / Windows2003

2. install the USB-to-COM driver to the VM

3. Attach the Modem to the R310 (USB)

4. Associate the item3 to the VM O/S

5. install the SMS program and connect to the modem in order to receive SMS

Do anything tried using a COM port modem in the VM using ESXi, please let me know steps or thing needs to address.

Thanks
