Ubuntu Serial Port usage

I have a desktop PC running Ubuntu 18.4. The PC has a DB-9 Serial port on the back and i'm trying to connect direct to a piece of hardware console port.

The Port is recognized on Ubuntu as:
Code:
teggenbe@teggenbe:~$ dmesg | grep tty
[ 0.000000] console [tty0] enabled
[ 0.801726] 00:02: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3f8 (irq = 4, base_baud = 115200) is a 16550A
However, when i try to connect using SercureCRT i see this:
Code:
Unable to open serial port /dev/ttyS0:
  Permission denied
I've tried different speeds and 'flow control' but always get the same message.
Is there a setting somewhere i'm missing?
I even tried to add 'sudo' in the pre-connect properties option.

Thanks
