Yes, I agree that we should use port 0 in almost all the test cases. 
However, it seems that this test case is a little bit special. It 
requires to initialize a ServerSocket to connect after 
connecting localhost successfully.  If we use port 0 and at the 
same time, the ServerSocket constructed will be invalid.

Thus, shall we assign a rarely-used port (e.g. 50000), or continue using 
Support_PortManager? Any ideas? Suggestions?
