Tomcat cannot listen on low ports
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:31 EST
Description of problem:
Because tomcat runs as a non-root user it cannot listen on low ports.
It might be possible to do a wrapper which handles the setuid/setgid bit but
retains the capability to bind to low ports.
tomcat-4.1.24-5 has hooks in daemon.c where capabilities code could be added.
