Apache use with IIS on the same network with same domain name

Can I use Apache on the same network/domain as an IIS server? If so, what limitations, restrictions, or requirements exist or must be dealt with for Apache and IIS to function properly?

It can be done, you need to adjust some settings in IIS, and tell it not to bind to all IPs, do the same for Apache.
You would not be able to run the same domain of both servers, unless the FQDN is different.

right, forgot that.

wrong!
you can. But depending on the point of view (server or client), you need to manage different settings

Are you saying you can run www.mydomain.com of IIS and Apache at the same time?

round robin is the only way I see that could work. But not work at the same time..

where is kfacer's response to the initial comment!

yes and no.  I think the confusion is because we tend to assume what the asker wants.

yes, apache and iis can coexist -- as long as both are listeing on a different port (agree with ahoffmann), or both can listen to same default port 80, but must be on different IP -- meaning that same physical macine must be configured to have two IP address (two virtual interface) , and/or two physical NIC -- with 2 different address.

-- the other portion -- yes, both can be configured to react to request for www.mydomain.com (look at previous comment).

kfacer:  If you could spell out what you want to do, then maybe we could offer you a more feasible option.

cheers,
