Building from my previous questions:

QGIS Server limitations?

I want to evaluate performance of both MapServer and GeoServer. Can both servers exist on the same machine (each serving out WMS) or should I set them up on separate servers?


You can check out this site with detailed comparison of Mapserver vs. Geoserver http://www.esdmdata.co.uk/mapserver-and-geoserver-and-tilecache-comparison-serving-ordnance-survey-raster-maps


You can install both of them on the same system; You just need to make sure that they use different ports.

You had mentioned that you have a Windows Server. If you use MS4W for Mapserver, it uses port 80 by default. And if you use the GeoServer Windows Installer, it will use port 8080 by default.

So the defaults should work just fine, as long as you don't have something else running on these ports.
