JBoss will not run on port 80

Hi

It is probably a well-know fact that JBoss can not start if you tell it to listen on port 80, because UNIX in general does not allow low port numbers. The solution seems to be to forward the traffic coming on port 80 to port 8080 on the machine where JBoss is running. Is this the best approach?

Thank you.

or run it from root account, hence it's a security issue.
