I've briefly tested this configuration and it seems to work. I have Workspace running on the same server as Connect (which pre-existed). Here are the steps:

First, if you are installing Workspace on an existing Connect server, know that Workspace defaults to 80 and 443 and may interrupt access to Connect until you complete this.

This assumes you have Connect preinstalled on 80 and 443. Bind a second IP address to the server (I use Windows, but you can do this in Linux). For this example, we'll assume the server's primary IP is which Connect uses. Bind as a secondary address on the same network interface. Install Workspace. Stop the Workspace service. Open Windows Explorer to c:\program files\kerio\workspace\tomcat and edit the server.xml file in notepad (or similar text editor - I like Notepad++ which is free and nicely formats XML and other programming languages). Note all the <Connector lines. After the protocol section, add address="" using the IP you've bound to the network interface. Make sure you do this for all <Connector lines. Now start the Workspace service. Now when you access the urls for each app on 80 and 443, you should connect to each site respectively. You'll know because the Workspace logon is gree, Connect is blue. Test this by connecting to 80 and 443 on each IP address, .11 should open to Connect as it did before and .12 should open to Workspace.

Two important notes. If you have your server behind a firewall NAT, you will need to setup a 2nd public IP NAT to your 2nd bound IP on the server (example, public IP NATs to and NATs to Second, as you upgrade Workspace, you'll need to check this server.xml file to make sure your edits are still there and make any additional edits if new <Connector lines are added.

Of course, this is not supported by Kerio, but I've tested it NAT'd behind a firewall. This config allows me to use separate SSL certs registered to different domain names both connecting to 443 on the same physical server. Hopefully, Kerio will add this as an easier option in a future release.
