What type of gateway or hub fpr Hyper-V?


I’m running Home Assistant in a virtual machine on Hyper-V.
Is there a way to connect a ZigBee gateway over ethernet?

All the configuration options for ZigBee seem to expect a serial connection.
So I can either forget about Hyper-V or Home Assistant?


Zigbee2mqtt with a Zigbee stick on a Raspberry PI or other single board computer will do the job.

Thanks for your reply.

Are there other standards beside ZigBee that include a gateway or hub that is adressable by Home Assistant over ethernet?

Background Info: I have removed 2 Raspberry Pi, a WiFi Controller, a Firewall and a Home Computer by moving everything into virtual machines on Hyper-V.
Reverting to a Raspberry Pi would mean that I need to revise the whole concept. So I’d rather look at alternatives first.

Personally I recommend just using USB passthrough to the virtual machine and a very long USB extension cable, and best is to use a powered USB 2.0 hub to avoid interference → https://community.home-assistant.io/t/guide-for-zigbee-interference-avoidance-and-network-range-coverage-optimization/515752

Yes tunnel serial connection over a TCP stream to a socket from LAN adapters or build your own DIY:
