I want to change the port 8080 to the default HTTP port (80), to use a Jersey Application as HTTP-Restful API. Therefore I replaced the port from 8080 to 80 (within /etc/tomcat7/server.xml) and configured it to use AUTHBIND (/etc/defaults/tomcat7). After restarting the service I found this strange error in /var/log/tomcat7/catalina.out.

Can someone translate this error? Why is tomcat not able to create the socket?

I am using ubuntu 14.04 and tomcat7.

I found a working solution:

sudo touch /etc/authbind/byport/80
sudo chmod 500 /etc/authbind/byport/80
sudo chown tomcat7 /etc/authbind/byport/80
