Current version of Bash on Ubuntu on Windows supports serial ports.
Serial Support on the Windows Subsystem for Linux
From the report of MSDN, you can use a serial port as following parameters.
In WSL, the lxcore driver maps COM ports to Linux devices by the COM
port number so /dev/ttyS<N> is tied to COM<N>. More
specifically, the mapping is on the minor number, so minor number 65
(/dev/ttyS1) is COM1, 66 (/dev/ttyS2) is COM2, and so forth. Since pty,
tty, and ttyS share a terminal library code base, ttyS will behave
similarly but also support the following termios settings which are
simply mapped to Windows serial driver ioctls:
When I want to connect a router or switch for setting it, I can use a serial ports by cu command as /dev/ttysS1.
