Is the serial port on the target a real onboard UART and not a USB to serial adapter (or other non-UART device)?

Subject: [windbg] remote kernel debugging on windows vista home premium?
I am trying to set up remote kernel debugging, which involves Windows 2000 sp4 (host) and Vista home premium sp2 (64-bit) (target).
Target has two Pentium Dual-Core E5300 CPU's.
On the host I am using KD.exe 6.12.0002.633 x86 (the latest available 32-bit package) My host cannot connect to the target. When I press Ctrl-C it just sits there "waiting to reconnect"
I checked connectivity between two COM ports using putty.exe and it looks like two machines communicate without a problem.
I made changes to BCD using bcdedit as described in http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/hardware/gg487520
But if situation is reversed, kd on Vista machine (now host) connects to Win2000 (now target) without any problem.
The x64 Debugging Tools for Windows package is required only if you are debugging an application on an x64 processor.
In any other scenario, you should use the 32-bit package. For example, if performing kernel debugger debugging of an x64 target machine from an x86 host machine, you should install the 32-bit package."
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
