Wherever possible, NNMi and the iSPI products should run as non-root users. We also want to reduce the need for the administrators to need root access to administer and maintain the applications.
https://softwaresupport.softwaregrp.com/km/KM00965235 “Why NNMi(Network Node Manager) requires root access” explains that processes need to start as root to allocate ports below 1024. Might it be possible to use a port translation process similar to NA to avoid the need to allocate these low ports and also have the customer use high ports for the HTTP and HTTPS access?
