[Setup] Zope/Plone ports to avoid Sharepoint

Hello friends,

I have set up a Plone site on my machine (Windows XP) and I will soon 
attempt to recreate it on our LAN server (Windows Server 2003).  How should 
I do port assignments on the server?

Windows XP, or Windows server 2003

I don't know much about this, but I think it breaks down into sub-topics:
Q1. Determine what ports are in use on the Windows server.
Q2. Determine what port assignments need to be made for Zope to work.
Q3. Make the assignments.

Re Q1:  I don't know how to do this. I know there are certain traditional 
values for different protocols, but that is different from finding what is 
actually in use. I know that Sharepoint is running and I expect therefore 
that 8080 is in use. Is the port assignment information centralized 
somewhere in windows?

Re Q3: I think all of the configuration is in zope.conf. I have already 
changed <http-server> to 8081.

Re Q2: On what protocols/ports should I expect Zope/Plone to collide with 
other services? Am I right that it is undesirable to have two programs 
listening to the same port, but it is OK to have two programs use the same 
outgoing port? Is it enough that I have changed <http-server> port ?

Thank you for any pointers.
