access using port 443
Is the use of port 443 only accessible to root? Specifically, I have monitoring software with a web interface that I want to use https (port 443), however when I run the software, I get an error stating that the port is already in use...
I know that it is not in use (or at least it does not show up in netstat -a), and my thought is that the error is erroneously reporting it is in use when really it might just not have access to it.
Also, it runs ok when I start it as root, but I do not want to run it as root.
any way to get around this?
