I tried this years ago with ESXI and it failed miserably. I was able
to pass the URI through to the VM, but the audio was extremely choppy and

My opinion is it's not worth the headache, but YMMV as technology may have
improved since I last touched this (2011'ish I think). Hub nodes or nodes
with no direct hardware attached seem to work pretty good though, a friend
of mine will have an RTCM soon and we'll be testing with that.
