<h3 class="title">Port Allocation</h3>
<p class="header">
The elusive topic of users being able to allocate ports has come up several times on bboard and has yet to be documented. Here's official word from smj:

Its quite simple and should be add to the tutorials. The port number is
based on your numeric id. You may run a simple server process on as long as it does not circumvent a membership (for instance,
running your own webserver to host your own domain name bypassing the VHOST
membership). IRC bots are fine and servers of reasonable or less foot
print. For instance if you ran a nickserver or bot you'll likely be fine.
If you run a minecraft server you'll probably get emails from other users
asking you to stop hogging CPU and Memory.
<strong>How To:</strong>
Now that you know the policy, you might ask yourself, how do I get my numeric id?
Which system provides the correct numeric id? Answer is simple, you run the
`id` command from any cluster server, and note your uid, this is your numerically
assigned port number.
$ id
uid=56395(user) gid=500(arpa) groups=500(arpa),600(MetaARPA),900(motd)
in the above example, note the port number would be 56395. You are now ready to setup
your server software.
