If you don't need the shutdown port (which, by the way, only accepts
connections from, then don't use it.  It's pretty
straightforward to write your own wrapper around the Tomcat startup
process that doesn't enable this -- which means, of course, that you must
also provide some other mechanism for controlled shutdown.
