Subject RE: Tomcat 4.1, Standalone, Port 80, Coyote
Date Mon, 14 Apr 2003 16:38:59 GMT

On unix, only the superuser and other privileged accounts can open
server sockets on ports numbered less than 1024.  Windoze doesn't have
this security feature by default.  Either run on a >1024 port, run as
super user, for find another alternative (e.g. use apache front-end, as
apache supports better run-as directives).
