  • Running tc server SSL on port 443

    We've got a new fun project, in the end a single war in a tc server instance (installed as RPM on SLES11). I used the script with the bio-ssl template to create an instance. It works great if I use --property bio-ssl.https.port=8443, but if I specify port 443 the server cannot start.

    From what I can tell, only root can bind a port lower than 1024, so I need some options. In other projects, I've been using Apache with mod_proxy or mod_jk, but this time we were looking for as few components as possible for a virtual appliance implementation.

    Any ideas for port forwarding? What are your favorite solutions?

    not a good idea to run tomcat as root, run it on 8443, then use iptables to listen on 443 and forward to tomcat. this is the security recommendation
