.NET Remoting over random client ports

I have an application that was written using remoting.  There is a remoting service that gets installed on the server (which has all the business code to access the database, etc) and a client GUI which is compiled with "stubs" to the business code.  When the client is run, the remoting piece connects it to the proper business code in the remoting service.  This all works great, however, it was designed using set ports.  Both client GUI and remoting service are configured to use port 8089 (why that port was chosen, I don't know).  Anyway, I have read a bit on the internet that leads me to beleive that the port on the client side can be random, but I'm not sure, given our application, how to make that happen.  The problem is that you can only run ONE client on ONE machine at a time because it uses a set port.  We want to be able to run multiple clients on the same machine.

I am hoping that to accomplish the client random port, I can simply make a config change and walla!  I have attached the config file for the client and the config file for the remoting service.  Can you tell me whether this can be accomplished with a simple config change and if so, what I would change in my config files to make that happen?
Thanks!

I resolved this myself by setting the port to 0 in the client configuration file:
<channel ref="tcp" port="0">
