From my rummaging through the Max Node.js source code, it seems there may be a way to spawn a Node.js process outside of the `node.script` Max object, when this is possible, it could be spawned with sudo privileges.
I'm curious - what do you want to achieve with this?
The short answer is to get a node server I cobbled together a couple of years to run! For some reason it only works if I use sudo. It uses sockets.io which seems to be the offending section, not sure why. Port 3000.
There are workarounds but I’m thinking I should probably rebuild it and try to actually understand it this time!
