Subject: running Tomcat on port 80 as non root
From: "Aymeric Alibert" <>
I am trying to find a workaround to the fact that Tomcat cannot run as
non-root on port 80 on UNIX.

It seems that our firewall can redirect the request from port 80 to port
8080. This way, tomcat can run a non-root on port 8080.
Does anybody kows if there are some problems with that configuration?
Could this redirect confuse some proxy servers? (sending a request on 80 and
getting a response from 8080).
