Hello alltogether,

it's a really silly question actually, but I just can't figure it out. I want to write a simple server, that serves the HTTP-protocoll (Port 80). The connection does work, when I let the programme run on port 8080, but Mac OS prohibits the connection on port 80. What can I do?

Many, many thanks

PS I thought I posted this thread yesterday already, but can't find it anymore. So if the old thread still exist, please delte this one.

Most likely you weren't running the program as a privileged user. Mac OS X requires administrative privileges to bind on ports < 1024.
