Only if there on your own private subnet, otherwise you must have 
multiple public IP addresses and (nat)forward them to the private ones 
accordingly.
If you have only 1 public IP adress you could use multiple ports on the 
public IP and mapped them back to the right IP & ports, say (public 
IP):6667 -> 192.168.1.7:6667 and (public IP):6668 -> 192.168.1.7:6667 
however with this option you could have saved your hassle to create a 
alias and just used the 6668 port for your other daemon on 192.168.1.5
