Improve error message in ServerService.getRandomPort()

Description

Incorporate some of the same try/catches that are in the isPortAvailable() method into getRandomPort() to give the user a more useful error in the event that their host file entry is invalid or missing, or resolves to an IP that's not assigned to a local network adapter. Right now, the Java exception that comes back can be confusing.
