Subject RE: How to use Port 80?
Date Mon, 23 Sep 2002 13:50:37 GMT

Yes, you put a webserver like Apache on port 80, then configure Apache to
send JSP and servlet requests to Tomcat.

Running things as root on port 80 is a bad idea, especially if you are new
to systems administration.  If you are just doing development, etc. on a
private machine, it is not that big of a deal.  Keep in mind, though, that
if you build your application to assume that everything happens on port 80
and that Tomcat runs as root, you will most likely have some fairly big
obstacles to overcome when you try to deploy your app, especially if you
don't control the targeted production server.
