You can capture data that a running program sends by directing the output to an output parallel port. You can view the data by reading the output file.


In the Inventory panel, select the virtual machine to modify.


In the Commands section of the Summary tab, click Add Hardware.

The Add Hardware wizard opens.


Click Parallel Port.


Click Output file.


On the Properties page, type the path and filename for the output file or click Browse to navigate to the file.


(Optional) To connect this virtual machine to the host’s serial port when the virtual machine is powered on, select Connect at Power On (the default) and click Next.


On the Ready to Complete page, review the configuration summary and click Finish.

The operating system detects the new parallel port the next time you power on the virtual machine.
