Hello Andre,

I will answer to your post tonight. In short, the way is to have all 
your stuff binded to the standard Apache's 80 port trought sockets 
translators/listeners able to use the 80 port to provide the 
requests/replies over the web and to have your server-sided Rev apps 
connectables to the Apache default port from they own private/protected 
(> 1024) port. I use, for my own, a 10 lines .PHP script as the sockets 
translator. You can find it in searching the archives.

Because lots to do until 21 PM, more detals tonight :)
