I want to allow a non-root user to bind to a port below 1024 (specifically port 443, but not SSL). The user will be running a node.js server if that matters. The Droplet does not exist yet, but is planned to be Ubuntu 14.04. I have successfully used setcap with the cap_net_bind_service option to achieve this on a dedicated server. Can I do this on a Droplet?
