question about server port number

I installed a macromedia jrun server. It offers three servers by default -- "admin", "sample", "default". Each of them has a different port number. For example, "default" has 8100. so if I create some web application on "default" server I can access it from "http://server:8100/app/....".

Now my question is --- I don't want to show this "8100" port number on the URL for users. I want to provide user with the following URL "http://server/app/..." but I still want to put my application on this "default" server. How to make it work ?

Your JRun documentation should cover all that. As I recall, JRun comes set up for integration with IIS - in which case IIS would be using port 80 and redirecting requests that are specific for JRun to the higher port. Thats why the default server is not installed on port 80.
I agree. Here's the link:
