Tor doesn't bind to low IPv6 ports

IPv4 works fine with a low port number (445 in my case), but IPv6 doesn't.


ORPort 445
ORPort [2001:db8:a:b::c]:445

[warn] Could not bind to 2001:db8:a:b::c:445:
| > | Permission denied

Now when I change the IPv6 port to a higher number everything works fine:

ORPort [2001:db8:a:b::c]:4445

Hm. What is giving Tor process permission to bind to IPv4 port 445 ? Are you starting as root, or running with elevated capabilities, or something else?

Unless one does non-root without giving the right capability, this just works(tm).

As an example:

OR Addresses,[2001:470:1:1e4::2]:443

Finally admitting that 0.3.??? was a euphemism for Tor: unspecified all along.
