Remoting Configuration Problem

I've run into a small issue with Remoting. Hopefully someone can shed some light on this. I have a WinService that hosts two Remoted objects - its configuration file has the following elements:

            <channel ref="tcp" port="5050" >
                    <formatter ref="binary" typeFilterLevel="Full" />
                    <formatter ref="binary" />
            <wellknown mode="Singleton" 
                type="ServerNotification, Auditing" 
            <wellknown mode="Singleton" 
                type="AdministrationService, AdministrationService" 

I call RemotingConfiguration.Configure() and then I call RemotingServices.Marshal(). All is well on the server side. The problem is on the client side. When I try to hook up and invoke methods on both objects, I get the following exception:

System.Net.Sockets.SocketException: Only one usage of each socket address (protocol/network address/port) is normally permitted

This makes sense as both are listening on port 5050. But I can't figure out how I can set up via a .config file that each object will be listening on separate ports. I know I can do this via code via RegisterWellKnowServiceType(), but I want to do this via configuration. Is this possible, and if so, how is it done? Feel free to leave a comment if you know the answer - thanks in advance.
