    Problem: starting jboss service on port < 1000 (80 to be exa

    John C. Dale Newbie

      I'm running the jboss_init_redhat.sh script as root from the bin directory under JBOSS_HOME.

      I've created the jboss user (as referenced from the script), and all other things seem to be in line.

      I'm getting the following error:
      java.net.BindException: Permission Denied

      This exception origninates from the MBeanProxy after attempting to start the Jetty service.

      From what I understand, if you aren't starting the process as root, and the process attempts to acquire a socket to a port < 100 (port 80 in this case), the previous exception case will arise. I thought that the su -c someLinuxProcess would circumvent the problem, but it doesn't seem to be.

      Please advise.

      Thanks,

      John
