ahhhhhh - yes, i'm wanting the vps itself to participate in one of the networks - conflicting ports makes sense, was going off this statement: https://docs.netmaker.org/troubleshoot.html
"If you want to give the physical server / VM a private IP in the netmaker network, you must deploy an additional node using the standard netclient. The only note here is that the server consumes ports 51821-51831, so you will need to give it a port outside this range, e.x. ./netclient join
One a netclient is deployed to the underlying server/VM, you will be able to use the private address to reach other nodes from the host, or to reach the server over the private network."
