Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously, in the insecure mode, which enables non-root users to set or unset ports, a privileged port was required. As only root users can obtain a privileged port, non-root users could not set or unset ports. To fix this bug, the privileged port has been removed, and thus non-root users are now allowed to set or unset ports on the loopback interface.
