virtualization and serial port

Hello,

I have installed an OpenWrt virtual machine on top of a Metarouter, in my RB433 router (MIPS).
Is it possible to have acces to the serial and USB ports, from the virtual machine ?

My goal is to install a small C program to read raw data coming from a GPS receiver, and then make it available to remote users, through the router.

Thanks,

no there is no direct way to access any hardware of host system by the guest.

Best chance for you is to use special login feature and forward serial into TCP connection to your guest.
