Hi Dan,

How are you running Rabbit? Most systems implement a restriction where only
processes run by root can take ports <1024. The  default start scripts for
rabbit will actually start Rabbit as a "rabbitmq" user, so in order to take
a well-known port, you'd need to alter these scripts.

Be warned however that Rabbit doesn't support the features normally required
by daemons that use well-known ports, such as the ability to open the port
then drop to the context of a less privileged user. This means that a Rabbit
running as root will stay running as root.
