You can change the default ports for DTP applications to meet your infrastructure requirements. You should only follow these instructions if the default ports are unavailable.
Any port changes also affect Team Server, so you should also change Team Server port settings accordingly.
For UNIX, root permission is necessary in order to start the DTP Server on port 80, which is why the default port on Unix is set to 8080.
