Grant permission to run server - how?
I'm an experienced programmer but an absolute newbie to Linux.
I've written a very simple tcp/ip server program to learn tcp programming under linux. When I run it under the root, it works ok. But when I run it under a normal user I get an error 13 - permission denied, when I try to bind() the server socket to the IP address.
I'm sure I must be able to grant the user account permission to do this, but how and where? Do I have to add the user to some group? But what group would that be?
I'm running Mandrake 10.1.
