Tomcat Permission denied <null>:80


Hello Gurus,

We have installed BOBJ 4.1 SP4 on UNIX and we got an requirement to change the default port 8080 to 80.

We have edited tomcat server.xml file and chaged port to 80 and restarted the tomcat, but it did not worked.

"Here is the error message:

SEVERE: Failed to initialize end point associated with ProtocolHandler ["http-bio-80"] Permission denied <null>:80"

I found SAP note# 1344827 for the same and it says "The Tomcat user id does not have permission to use the ports lower than 1024 in Unix require root privileges". could you please let me know if any workaround to overcome this issue.

Thanks and Regards,
