The answer is YES. You don't need root access to host the application on port 80. Do as follows :-
- Please login to OAS Management Webpage using ias_admin authentication.
- Navigate to OC4J - Configuration and change the default listening port to 80.
- Bounce the application server and you are good to go.
Note : This works, only If no other http servers are configured in your server for port 80.
Hi gauty, if you are not on a production environment, you could try the option.
If you still get permission issues, try the other method which involves the ProxyPass configuration.

Hope this helps,
