How to open ports below 1024 as a user (Redirect maybe)
Posted on 2004-11-22
My problem is with Slackware Linux. I need to start a tunneling server written in java, but I cannot use port 443, because I have no root permissions. However the proxy I need to bypass only allows connect to 443. So is there any way for me as a user to start my server on this port or to redirect this port to so higher and listen there. I could ask the admin to do something, so if it's the only way, I would appreciate such solution also. Thank you!
