SOLVED: Ubuntu Lucid Alfresco 3.3g IMAP and authbind woes

Question asked by cloudcontrol on Jul 19, 2010
Latest reply on Jul 20, 2010 by cloudcontrol
Everything seems to be in place for authbind to work, but Alfresco 3.3g IMAP fails to bind to port 143. Binding to unprivileged ports works fine.  Anyone have success binding to  privileged ports with Alfresco 3.3g?

/etc/default/tomcat6 line 60: AUTHBIND=yes
/etc/authbind/byuid/107 (tomcat UID)= 0.0.0.0/32:1,1023 (also tried removing this file and creating /etc/authbind/byport owned by tomcat6 user

In alfresco-global.properties:
#
# IMAP
#————-
imap.server.enabled=true
imap.server.port=143
imap.server.host=(hostname which resolves to local IP address)

web.application.context.url=http://FQDN:8080/alfresco
imap.server.web.application.context.url=http://FQDN:8080/alfresco

tomcat6 init script excerpt:

catalina_sh() {
   # Escape any double quotes in the value of JAVA_OPTS
   JAVA_OPTS="$(echo $JAVA_OPTS | sed 's/\"/\\\"/g')"

   AUTHBIND_COMMAND=""
   if [ "$AUTHBIND" = "yes" -a "$1" = "start" ]; then
      JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true"
      AUTHBIND_COMMAND="/usr/bin/authbind –deep /bin/bash -c "
   fi

   # Define the command to run Tomcat's catalina.sh as a daemon
   # set -a tells sh to export assigned variables to spawned shells.
   TOMCAT_SH="set -a; JAVA_HOME=\"$JAVA_HOME\"; source \"$DEFAULT\"; \
      CATALINA_HOME=\"$CATALINA_HOME\"; \
      CATALINA_BASE=\"$CATALINA_BASE\"; \
      JAVA_OPTS=\"$JAVA_OPTS\"; \
      CATALINA_PID=\"$CATALINA_PID\"; \
      CATALINA_TMPDIR=\"$CATALINA_TMPDIR\"; \
      LANG=\"$LANG\"; JSSE_HOME=\"$JSSE_HOME\"; \
      cd \"$CATALINA_BASE\"; \
      \"$CATALINA_SH\" $@"

   if [ "$AUTHBIND" = "yes" -a "$1" = "start" ]; then
      TOMCAT_SH="'$TOMCAT_SH'"
   fi
