Can I have more than on Collector on an "off box" server?

This issue has been solved. See solution.

I've successfully set up Windows Event Collector 4.3 and and the Symantec agent on an "off box" Windows server. 

Can I run more than one collector on my "off box" server?

For example, could I install Windows Event Collector 4.3 and Sun Solaris Collector on the same box?  And if I can do I need to install another instance of the Agent?

Normally you can run multiple collectors on one machine.

And no, you don't need another instance of the agent.

Concerning the collectors, there might be sometimes some incompatibilities with some versions, but those are few.

One thing I recommed if you install for example a 4.3 and 4.4 collecor on the same machine, is to install the 4.3 collector first and then the 4.4 collector.
