Re: [Xen-users] Problems with serial IO PCI card in DomU


i get the following errors if i try to load the xen-pciback module

modprobe xen-pciback
FATAL: Module xen_pciback not found.

modprobe pciback
FATAL: Module pciback not found.

find /lib -name "xen*" or  find /lib -name "pci*"

shows me no xen-pciback module

And lsmod shows me the following output

lsmod | grep pci
pci_hotplug            21587  1 shpchp

How can i redirect the ttyS0 over TCP/IP? I use a debian squeeze amd64
system? And how can i use the redirected serial port in linux/windows
