Change HTTP port to 80 and HTTPS port to 443
We are currently running our ECommerce application for CRM 5.0 and all functions are working fine. However, we have the following issue:
The HTTP port is currently on 50100 & HTTPS on 50101. We want to change the same to port 80 and 443 respectively so the port numbers are not visible in the URLs, from a point of view of security.
How do we achieve the same?
Full points will be rewarded!!!
Thanks & Regards,

I think it's better to leave the J2EE server as it is and configure a reverse proxy or load balancing solution to do the job. If you have a hardware load balancer in your landscape, you can have them configure a virtual ip with ports 80 & 443, have the load balancer route the traffic to HTTP/HTTPS ports of the J2EE server. That's how we do it in our e-commerce landscape. You just need to create a DNS alias for the virutal IP of the loadbalancer and publish the DNS alias to the end users.
