When the socket is bound, one can retrieve the local port and let the client(s) know. I tried to do that in Pharo today, and these steps seem to work, by accepting an incoming connection gives a primitive failed.

I don't think so, in Java:
public ServerSocket (int port) throws IOException
Creates a server socket, bound to the specified port. A port of 0 creates a socket on any free port.
