    Cannot access Jboss AS 4.2.2 GA on port 80 from another mach

    Karel Jelinek Newbie

      I have a problem with running Jboss AS on port 80. I have read, that I must run it under root user, because another users cant user ports lower that 1234. So I have no problem with run jboss with port 80 and I can access my deployed application on localhost. But I cant access on jboss server if i try to connect from another computer.
      Tha strange thing is, that if I run apache web server on the same machine, under port 80, I can access it on localhost and also from another computer. So I think it can´t be problem with some firewall. Just to be sure I shutdown firewalls on both machines.
      I have windows XP and under it I run vmware workstation where I have openSuse 10.3 installed. I can ping linux machine from windows and windows machine from linux. As I saed I can access apache web server from windows if apache runs under linux on port 80. But I cant access jboss server from windows if it runs on linux under port 80.

      I think that it is some problem with jboss configuration.
      When I change configuration from port 8080 to port 80, I changed files
      jboss-4.2.2.GA\server\default\deploy\http-invoker.sar\META-INF\jboss-service.xml (I changed all 8080 to 80)
      and
      jboss-4.2.2.GA\server\default\deploy\jboss-web.deployer\server.xml (I changed only connector part)




      Thanks for some tips

            Under Linux you cannot use port 80 as a user.
            That is why the default port is 8080.

            Either run the server at root level or change the port to or add a second connector with 8080.
