SBS 2011 - Alternate ports to be used with Apache web services

Hello,

We are currently running an SBS 2011 machine with standard ports being used for OWA/RWW, etc.

A vendor has needed to install their product which uses Apache web services which by default tries to use port 80 for web access.  I've had to disable this software to prevent OWA and other services from encoutering conflicts and being unable to start up.

I need to furnish this vendor with alternate ports to use for their product.  Rather than picking a random port number, is there a standard way of selecting a second best port number to use?  

Thanks in advance.

The usual are things like 8080, 8888, 4433, 4443 etc etc.
Although if you have another product which needs to use another web server like Apache then I would prefer to put it on another machine.

Any port other than 80 will require the port being specified.  So make sure you don't use that any commonly used port and then pick one - it really doesn't matter.  (For a list of commonly used ports, look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_TCP_and_UDP_port_numbers

Anything running on apache could run on IIS using a hostheader. If the vendor is unable to integrate with your server, you should put it on a different host.
