I prefer a) over b), but for the sake of completeness, we should point that 
there is third choice:
c) allow it to work, automagically determining new ports

For this to work, the user would have to choose which server is the "main" 
one. I don't know how hard it would be, and don't think it's very useful, but 
it's the "perfect" solution.
