You can minimize the possibility of interference by avoiding the use of 
well-known and registered ports:

Option 1: Pick some obscure port, for example 12375 (I just made it up).

Option 2: Your server can attempt to bind to a range of commonly free 
ports, pick the first open port and write it to a file or registry or 
other location that can be read by potential clients.
