How to debug serial pipe on esxi 5.0?

Hello everyone,

I have setup a serial pipe, \\.\pipe\com_1 between 2 virtual machines residing on the same esxi 5 host.

1 virtual machine hosts a POS application under windows 2008, and another hosts a transaction system under RHEL v6.

I have managed to get 2-way communication between virtual machines using PUTTY (by writing to COM1) on windows 2008 and ttys2 on RHEL.

However, when i try to launch the POS application under the windows vm, the rhel vm doesnt receive anything.

I would like to turn some kind of debugging on, so i can know if the issue is with the application accessing the pipe or the application itself. And of course why..

Looking forward for your reply
