Connecting to a virtual machine via serial console

Add serial port to VM with the settings:
Use named pipe:
<filename for the named pipe (unix-socket)>
This end is the server
The other end is an application

Connect with:

1
 socat unix-connect:/path/to/socket stdio,echo=0,raw

Make sure that the serial port is enabled in the VM bios if it doesn’t work.
