I am trying to use tornado websockets for my application.

I want to know as to how can I point a custom application on a particular port to point to this tornado web application?

You can create a custom app listening on port by using the panel as explained here.

You can run your tornado web server on that app's assigned port to accomplish what you want. Please note that Websockets requires HTTP/1.1 connections which can't be established using our frontend server as such you will have to get a dedicated IP at $5/month and get port opened on it by filing a support ticket to use WebSockets.

Note that WebFaction now supports the use of WebSockets without the need for a private IP address. Open a support ticket if you want this enabled for your application.
