+ ==== Running Tomcat Stand-alone on Port 80 ====
+ By Jason Brittain:
+ 
+  . On non-Windows operating systems, Tomcat can only answer web requests on port 80 or port
443 when Tomcat is integrated with a solution that allows receiving requests on these default
privileged port numbers. Because using the default port numbers is preferable or even required
for many reasons, Tomcat administrators must research the solutions and choose a way to configure
it to work on their servers.
+ 
+  . There are a number of solutions for making Tomcat answer port 80 requests. We'll list
the popular solutions, discuss the pros and cons of each solution, and discuss which solutions
are usually preferable, and for which reasons.
