Description Gary Benson 2003-05-28 06:38:18 EDT
Description of problem:
Because tomcat runs as a non-root user it cannot listen on low ports.

Additional info:
It might be possible to do a wrapper which handles the setuid/setgid bit but
retains the capability to bind to low ports.
Comment 1 Gary Benson 2003-06-04 12:10:17 EDT
tomcat-4.1.24-5 has hooks in daemon.c where capabilities code could be added.
