I have two small web applications, one serves a front-end site for students and the other is the admin back-end to manage the front.
For security of the backend, my administrator wants to run the front through port 80, as usual, but wants to restrict the admin side to another port.
Is this possible with both applications running on the same machine, using
Secondly, what is needed? Do I have to do something to configure tomcat? Would it also involve something added/changed in the deployment descriptor?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Since it would not handle many requests you could give it fewer threads etc.
Let us know what happens.
