TTcpServer please help me oh, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME

I am using the TTcpServer component.

When I TTcpServer.Active := false or TTcpServer.close; I cannot get
the component to light up again using TTcpServer.open or
TTcpServer.Active := true or by tweaking any other property of this
component.  Am I going insane or is this a bug or what ?

Any help out there for a poor tortured soul ??????
