"Com1" = "/dev/ttyS0"

If you have to specify the speed behind the app's back, so to speak, do
it with stty before starting wine:

stty -F /dev/ttyS0 115200

but probably the app will set it to what it wants anyway.

What in the name of Babbage do you think suid and gid are spoze to do to
a comm port?

On the way.  This letter brought to you by Wine using /dev/tts/3
(known before devfs as /dev/ttyS3).
