VMware ESXi 5 and 4.1: serial COM port pass through (via: Serial Port handling in ESXi 4.1 | ESX Virtualization)

Recently I needed serial pass through as well, and surprise surprise, serial port pass through too was introduced with ESXi 4.1 as Vlatan Seget posted about a year ago:

in ESXi 4.1 since with this release of VMware Hypervizor now you have the possibility to attach and use the Serial port of the physical host.

Even better: it still works in ESXi 5 (:
