[ngw] co-existence of various services on the same "box" or "boxes"

I do more work on smaller systems that school systems/college systems. 
On the small mom/pop operations, I tend to do most of my services on one
or two servers, if possible.  for the ones I virtualize, the virtualized
machine gets an internal static IP.  To get around the public IP/Ports
conflicting, I generally ask the ISP for 2 or more public IP addresses.
Then, I set up appropriate port forwarding to allow outside services to
communicate with the correct internal IP /port.

The one piece I am not certain of is whether the calendar server uses
the same public ports as the calendar publishing host.  ,

I learned a long time ago that it’s best to run one service per server
(physical or virtual). Virtual machines are cheap to spin up, and you
get maximum flexibility. I learned that the hard way with trying to run
IMAP with SMTP or POP on the same system.

"calendar server" co-exist on the same "box" as my "calendar publishing
host"?  Am I going to have port issues doing so?
