Depends on what you mean by "port" and by "shared".  But IIUC, in your
case you're talking about having several programs listening on the same
port number on the same machine on the same interface, so the answer
would be no.

AFAIK if all those users configure their Transmission to use the same
ports, only the first Transmission will run, the other ones will fail
at startup.
