AMD64 Linux emulation weirdness

Not sure if anyone can help or provide some logic to my
problems I'm seeing, but I figured I would give it a

I recently purchased a dual AMD Opteron 64bit machine
with FreeBSD 5.2.1 pre installed. I had two streaming
servers which I wanted to run off of it and since
neithr had 64bit versions, I decided to use the
Linux based versions and simply use the Linux emulation
base 7.

I was able to get Helix Universal Server (by realnetworks)
installed along with the Flash Communications Server. Both
at the time functioned properly (i believe). I then upgraded
to FreeBSD 5.3 and noticed that I was unable to connect to
both server's "administrator interface" via web browser. I
do not recall if the issue was as a result of upgrading to
5.3 or if it just never worked.

I then upgraded to 5.3-stable and upp'd the linux base to 8.
Same problems still. I was able to see the connection via
tcpdump and netstat but was not recieving a responce from
the server via web browser that it had connected.

I have both servers currently working perfectly on a 4.9
machine using the same configuration. I am guessing this
is either a problem with the emulation or with Freebsd 5.3.
Do you have any suggestions on what I should try before
I have to revert back to FreeBSD 4.10 with 32bit?

any help would be appreciated.
