Indy - catch EIdCouldNotBindSocket


I'm having this (probably trivial) problem with the above mentioned exception. I know it comes from me starting up multiple instances of the same application (containing a TIdUDPServer).

What I can't figure out is how do I catch it!?
It would be nice if the program could gracefully recover instead of crashing, right! :)

Why do I suddently feel like an idiot...well were it not for the fact that I din't try this earlier, I think.
Having the Active property set to false and setting it at runtime, it works just catching Exception.
Like so:

    IdUDPServer.Active := true;
    on Exception do ShowMessage('Damn!');
