I seem to be unable to change the permissions on the /dev/ttyS0 device of a CentOS 6.4 machine.

Every time I reboot, the system goes back to the defaults.

I've googled that I need to edit the udev rules, but I can't seem to figure out how to do it.

Can someone help me?

Something along the lines:

KERNEL=="ttyS[0-9]*", NAME="tts/%n", SYMLINK+="%k", GROUP="uucp", MODE="0666"

Can be easily found in you favourite search engine.
