I wouldn't seperate resources based on tcp ports but that's your call.

1. Make sure each httpd vistual host has a fully qualified ServerName
   directive, e.g. "ServerName" for the first one and
   "ServerName" for the second.

2. If you want to use the same entityID (same logical SP, as far as
   SAML IDPs will be concerned) for both resources the SP's SAML
   metadata will need to include protocol endpoints for both virtual
   hosts, i.e. you would duplicate any relevant endpoints (possibly
   only ACS URLs) to match both virtual hosts/ports.

Either way, but especially if you want seperate entityIDs for each
virtual host (to allow IDPs to differentiate the logocal SPs), have a
look at the documentation:
