Using host pipe and TunnelEx

Postby darkwing » 10. Apr 2009, 16:37

Hi all,

My goal is to redirect all UDP traffic on port 10000 to the "serial" port on the CentOS Guest system. To do this, I created a host pipe with Virtual Box and specified the path \\.\pipe\mypipe. I downloaded this program called TunnelEx which supposedly could redirect traffic and should do exactly what I need, UDP to named pipe. However, TunnelEx fails to connect to the named pipe created by Virtual Box. Has anyone used this and can give me tips to make this work? What about other methods that I can use to accomplish the same goal?

Thanks,
darkwing

Use Host interface(or bridge), not NAT, for pipes/tunnels.

Ah sorry, I guess I didn't clearly explain. I need to redirect all UDP traffic on the Windows host OS to the "serial" port on the guest OS. This is why I need to create a named pipe to be used as a serial port. Thus doing NAT or not I don't think is relevant. But just to clarify, I am using host networking already. So anyone has any idea on how I could do this?
