Is it printed wrongly?

I'm puzzled while reading the book "Head First Servlets&JSP" on page 21,
when i encountered a sentence as follow:Using one server app per port,a server can have up to 65536 diferent server apps running( although it's
possible to run more than one app on the same port if the apps use different protocols).
If so,could i deploy one app using FTP protocol and another one using HTTP,both on port 80? Is it printed wrongly or do i make a mistake?
i think the last sentence should be:
although it's
possible to run more than one app on the same port if the apps use the same protocol).

It is possible to run more than one app on the same port at the same time.

No it is not. I'm curious to know what they mean by stating that different protocols would make it OK. I suppose one could make a proxy app to bind to a particular port and forward requests according to the protocol, but the downstream apps would still need to bind to their own ports.
Submit your find to the errata.

Sorry, it was a typo.

I had meant It is not possible to run more than one app on the same port at the same time.
