Use standard port 80 (for http) and port 443 (for https) for virtual service?

  • 1.  Use standard port 80 (for http) and port 443 (for https) for virtual service?

    Posted 01-25-2018 08:39 AM

    As soon as I deploy a virtual service (VS) to any of the standard port 80 (http) and port 443 (https), the deployed VS stops with a bunch of errors atached to it.

     

    I need a confirmation if it is possible to assign any of the standard port to a virtual service and have it successfully deployed.  If yes, how can this be accomplished?

     

    Thanks

    Can you be more specific about what type of errors you are receiving?

    The message you are receiving is permission denied.

    This may not be an error from DevTest rather an OS permissions issue related to the Run As user.

     

    If Ubuntu ( and maybe all forms of Linux, I don't know), I believe only root can open ports lower than 1024. I doubt your VSE is running as root - at least, CA would not recommend you run VSE under the root account.

     

    If Windows (not sure the same port rule applies to only admin accounts), try netstat -aon | findstr /c:":443" from a CMD line. This might identify if another server process is running on those ports.

    Thanks Joel  for your response.

    I was able to get around the issue by redirecting ports 80 and 443 to any other random port in the Linux server:

     

    sudo iptables -t nat -I PREROUTING -p tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-ports 13005

     

    sudo iptables -t nat -I PREROUTING -p tcp --dport 443 -j REDIRECT --to-ports 13015

     

     

    Thanks again!
