The current SIMH 4.0 manual says in section 3.14, "Console Options:"
A simulator console can be connected to a serial port on the host system.
SET CONSOLE SERIAL=ser0 connect console to serial port ser0
SET CONSOLE SERIAL=COM1 connect console to serial port COM1
SET CONSOLE SERIAL=/dev/ttyS0 connect console to serial port /dev/ttyS0
The available serial ports on the host system can be displayed with
SHOW SERIAL display available serial ports on host
Serial port speed, character size, parity and stop bits can be
indicated on the by appending the speed, character size, parity and
stop bits to the serial port name:
SET CONSOLE SERIAL=ser0;2400-8N1
This will connect at 2400 with 8 bit characters, no parity and 1 stop
bit. The default serial speed, character size, parity and stop bits
This capability was added in 2012, I believe.
