Bug #9363

test_http.rb and others must be run as root

Added by Charles Nutter almost 2 years ago. Updated almost 2 years ago.

It seems like test/net/test_http.rb (and perhaps other network-related tests) must be run as root to test properly...or I am not seeing how to run them without using privileged ports.

We would like to use these tests in JRuby, and currently that's not possible since they bind to privileged.

If this is the case, we should fix the tests.

If this is not the case, please help me figure out how to run these tests without restricted ports.

Sorry, ignore this. I discovered that it was a bug in JRuby's BasicSocket.for_fd logic causing it to try to bind to the fd as if it were a port.
