This single server has been upgraded since the 4.x days and didn't start out as Partition capable. I believe that Lotus doesn't support automatically converting it to a partitioned server so there is another complication.
I've done the "bind to specific address" with the version that dropped support for MSF. The iSeries has some native applications that need to send mail, so I need the native SMTP as well as Domino's. Its just that they are behind a NAT firewall with only one public address and the public DNS is maintained by the ISP. Adding another address would mean buying another public address, getting the ISP to add the DNS entry _properly_ and (the easiest part) adding a rule to the firewall.
Actually there are times when magic with ports is required. When they wanted to use Apache for their web pages and keep access to web iNotes the Domino HTTP server had to move to a port other than 80. The Apache server handled all the web traffic with the Domino plug-in passing appropriate requests off to Domino.
Domino supports partitioning. You can have multiple Domino partitions on your iSeries. Not to be confused with iSeries LPAR. For example, on one of my iSeries I can do WRKDOMSVR and I'll see the following:
Domino Server GDSHELP DOMFAX01 GDDATA GDSSALES LEISERVE NOTES01 QUALITY SAMETIME01
SAMETIME01 is running SameTime. Now, you can configure each server to have the same IP address and play some magic with ports. NOT RECOMMENDED! No sober person does it that way. Each of my Domino servers has their own IP address. If you web search think "bind to specific address". After all, Sametime has it's own web based interface and who wants people to key in http://www.mycompany.com:85 to get to the sametime server?
CFGTCP 1. Work with TCP/IP interfaces Add your IP address for each Domino server 10. Work with TCP/IP host table entries Basically I just add the local interfaces for documentation really.
