May be a red herring... I'm able to reproduce the "No buffer space available" message when setting net.inet.tcp.(send|recv)space to non-default values. All I've tried is the following, with a kernel dated 2007/04/22: # sysctl net.inet.tcp.sendspace=131072 # sysctl net.inet.tcp.recvspace=262144 Example session: $ su2 # sysctl net.inet.tcp.sendspace=131072 net.inet.tcp.sendspace: 32768 -> 131072 # sysctl net.inet.tcp.recvspace=262144 net.inet.tcp.recvspace: 65536 -> 262144 # logout $ ssh medusa socket: No buffer space available ssh: connect to host medusa port 22: No buffer space available $ su2 # sysctl net.inet.tcp.sendspace=32768 net.inet.tcp.sendspace: 131072 -> 32768 # sysctl net.inet.tcp.recvspace=65536 net.inet.tcp.recvspace: 262144 -> 65536 # logout $ ssh medusa Last login: Mon Apr 23 03:45:45 2007 from ... I assume this is because the maximum size of a TCP datagram is 65536 bytes, but as I'm not familiar enough with TCP on such a low level, this may be speculation on my part.
