    The simplest method is to use an ethernet comm port capture device. Lantronics and Comtrol both make them. We use these in industrial automation when the RS232 devices are miles away.

    Hi,

    What is the detailed requirement of the network connection between the two VMs?

    Generally, if we want the two VMs to communicate with each other, we may connect the VMs to the same virtual switch.

    Thanks for your time!
    Best Regards,
    Anne
