Expect problems with SVN and TFS on the same Server?

will there be problems if I install SVN and TFS on the same Web-Server?

I have a VisualSVN server running on our Web-server http://ip-adress:8080/svn
I plan to install and configure MS Team Foundation Server on the same server with http://<ip-adress>:8080/tfs

I would ask any experts who has done this before, if there are any problems with this configuration.

I don't think you'll be able to do this because each service will want to control access to port 8080 on the server - when a client attempts to connect, it won't be able to tell from the initial access request whether TFS or SVN should handle the request (TFS uses IIS, and though I've not used VisualSVN before, it appears to use its own web server). I don't think Windows will even allow a second process to listen to a port that another process has already established ownership of.

That said, there's no reason you couldn't run both services on a single server provided you used a different port. Maybe you use 8088 for TFS and 8080 for SVN - in that case, they'd run fine side-by-side.

Thank you that makes sense.
There are many test applications that run on port 80 in different subdirectories. But they all run with IIS and if I test them, I always add the subdirectory to the request url.
