Is the solution suggesting that either `icecandidateerror` is unreliable or some ports are unusable? If yes, there are multiple issues with it:

* It's not deterministic,
* it's not testable,
* it's brittle because `icecandidateerror` may or may not fail, so relying on it is useless,
* it's brittle because it arrogates to know which ports are okay and which aren't,
* it still allows for fingerprinting.

I believe that's a deep rabbit hole. I'd suggest getting rid of `icecandidateerror` instead. We can live without it.
