Sounds like the same problem Vuze/Azureus has when running on FreeBSD 7.

That work-around only works on FreeBSD 6 (probably because of the
change to libthr in FreeBSD 7).

When I was testing Vuze again on FreeBSD 7.1-RC1 a few days ago, I
noticed that data transfer was happening when using UDP. But normal TCP
connections to other peers would time out, hanging during/after the
handshake. The connections seemed to be established though.

A Vuze developer told me, that transfers via UDP and TCP are using
different sets of native java APIs. TCP is non-blocking IO, so there
could be a problem in the FreeBSD Java code.
