Integrated STM-LINK with Virtual com port support

Hi all,

I have a DISCOVERY board for F030 devices. I think it's name is STM32F0308-DISCO.
What I'm trying to do is to use the integrated STM-LINK as an usb to serial dongle between the target MCU and the PC. 

I have found that a hardware connection is possible and provided through the SB15 and SB14 solder links, but I can't see the virtual com port installed although I upgraded the stm-link firmware with the latest one.

My question is: Is it possible at all?

All I have found in the internet is that it seems that the NUCLEO boards have this feature. Is it true? If yes, I'm willing to switch to a NUCLEO board rather than the DISCO. But I don't want to purchase a NUCLEO board only to see that I can't use the virtual com port of the stm-link again...

Thank you very much
