    Question Change dialout group of serial port or add another group to dialout?

    We have a group of users connecting to a server over NIS, and once logged in, they are a member of the "users" group.

    They need access to the /dev/ttyS0 serial port, which is owned by the dialout group.

    I can chmod the permissions of the /dev/ttyS0 serial port every time the box reboots, but that's not a good solution. Is there any way to change the default group of /dev/ttyS0 to "users"? If not, is there a way to add the "users" group to "dialout"?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    SOLVED

    I added

    Code:
    KERNEL=="ttyS0", MODE="0777"
    to /lib/udev/rules.d/10-local.rules and rebooted.
