Is this something specific to the Azureus client? Do you see the same
behavior using other clients?
I use "some other" BT torrent client on Linux and haven't seen problems
like you describe. True, a ping flood against the m0n0wall will be
throttled, which fits in line that "a billion icmp echo requests a
second is not legitimate traffic" and *should* be throttled.
As for what Azureus is doing, maybe its stupid, or maybe its something
in the bittorrent protocol that the freebsd kernel networking components
will have to be adjusted to handle better. A ping -f is a poor
troubleshooting tool to determine that though. Using a tool like iperf,
what sort of real packet loss / speeds do you see with TCP or UDP
*through* the m0n0wall? The compare this to the same measurements
*through* your clarkconnect and see if there is really that significant
of a difference.
