Goal

It is common that the XDB HTTP protocol server be set to a port number higher than 1023, port 1080 is usually suggested. 

Ports under 1023 can only be accessed by root, so serious security consideration should be made before running this procedure. 

There are certain situations where the customer may want to have the lower ports, port 80 for HTTP or port 443 for HTTPS,  open for access to the database
