This question already has an answer here:
I would like to run applications I'm working on that binds to port numbers less than 1000 without requiring root access.
I'm using Linux Mint and have root access to set it up. I would ideally like to be able to do it over SSH.
Also happy hear if it isn't possible or I shouldn't be doing it, if that is the case.
EDIT: Mostly I'm happy to use higher port numbers for development, but Flash is expecting a socket policy on port 843. Currently I have to run the app as root and therefore I can't run it from my Makefile which is a PITA.
