SerialBackingType

The Serial.BackingType enumerated type defines the valid backing types for a virtual serial port.
FILE : Virtual serial port is backed by a file.
HOST_DEVICE : Virtual serial port is backed by a device on the host where the virtual machine is running.
PIPE_SERVER : Virtual serial port is backed by a named pipe server. The virtual machine will accept a connection from a host application or another virtual machine on the same host. This is useful for capturing debugging information sent through the virtual serial port.
PIPE_CLIENT : Virtual serial port is backed by a named pipe client. The virtual machine will connect to the named pipe provided by a host application or another virtual machine on the same host. This is useful for capturing debugging information sent through the virtual serial port.
NETWORK_SERVER : Virtual serial port is backed by a network server. This backing may be used to create a network-accessible serial port on the virtual machine, accepting a connection from a remote system.
NETWORK_CLIENT : Virtual serial port is backed by a network client. This backing may be used to create a network-accessible serial port on the virtual machine, initiating a connection to a remote system.
