The machines are remote. Also, location doesn't seem to matter.
I get the same results when the Mac is on different networks,
wired or wireless.

No IPFW rulesets on this FreeBSD machine. On my old FreeBSD

On the Mac, I have the default firewall rules on but allow

   tcpdump -Xvn user and port 22
