Subject RE: Get rid of 8080 port in Tomcat 3.3

I totally disagree.
First, it would surely be best to update to 6.0 and run it using jsvc....

However, let's look at the solution in the link above.

1. "The Apache solution". (Which should be called the "httpd" solution.)
This will work, and might be okay, if you are already running apache on that
BUT tomcat itself can be faster (at least newer ones, I don't know about
3.x) without httpd.

2. The IP tables solution
You webapplication will not know about the different port and encode urls
incorrecly. Bad Idea and impossible if SSL is required.

3. The rinetd solution
Good for development and tests. Adds a little overhead AND destroy a lot of
logging and security, as tomcat will always see ONE client ip.

4. IPchains alternative
see 2.

Otherwise get jsvc to work for you.
