1st: What are the permissions on your /dev/ttyS1? Should be:

~$ ls -l /dev/ttyS1
crw-rw----   1 root     dialout    4,  65 Feb 20 16:06 /dev/ttyS1

2nd: Make sure dialout really is one of your supplemental gids

~$ id
..... 20(dialout) ...

If dialout doesn't appear, re-login and try again. Supplemental group ids
are set on login.
