I set up Tomcat as an unprivileged user in IBM AIX [not Linux]. I need to use SSL port 443, and an error of 8443. For Linux, you can use IP tables, what solution AIX?

Hi,

I understand that you are a linux user but if you are not familiar with unix environment you should note that it is a principle in unix that all the services that run on the ports below 1024 are not allowed to be started from the root.You can do this if you have the 'authbind' package under AIX.

If you have it than you can configure it so that the user has permission to listen on low port numbers like 443. You can exchange port numbers using NAT.

Otherwise you can extract the SSL certificates and install apache that starts services with low port numbers.
