Problems with /dev/ttyS0/1/2/3

I need help in configuring the serial ports correctly.  I have used sample codes from How-To pages with limited successes.  One of the problem is that after I write to /dev/ttyS1, the permission changes from crw_rw_rw_ to c_w__w__w_.  This does not occur to other ports.  Another is that the write() reports the bytes written, but the target device did not receive the bytes.  However, I am able to read data from the target device.  Can someone explain the minimum configuration need to perform asynchronous I/O to multiple ports?  Since the read() can only read 255 bytes at a time, I would also need to know how to activate interrupts for multiple ports.  Thanks in advance.

use /dev/cua{0,1,2,3} instead

I don't know anything about /dev/cua.  I found out my problem was that /dev/ttyS1 was assigned to COM2 and has been corrected.  I have requested this question be deleted.  Please respond if you have any objections.  Thanks.
