If it works when you run it using sudo, then you forgot to install it as root on the bsd system, and ignored/missed the error/warning message saying
'FAILED gdomap installation - please re-run this as root'

Interesting. I installed it the same as on solaris, linux, freebsd, openbsd. In a user-writeable directory and then I don-t even start it, the application starts it as needed.

On NetBSD it indeed appears that gdomap -f fails, while sudo gdomap -f doesn't retun (thus I assume it is working). Why is it so different than any other system? I don't think it used to be and I have both v2 and v4 of netbsd.

Now on NetBSD/sparc32 SMP with netbsd 2, FTP indeed works.

With the same procedure but on x86 v4.0, gdomap with sudo appears to run, but I get the following error on FTP run:

2008-08-02 00:10:16.329 FTP[1439] Problem posting notification: <NSException: 0x8537ae8> NAME:NSInternalInconsistencyException REASON:Unable to detach thread (last error Undefined error: 0) INFO:(nil)

Is this simply a case of mis-installed software rather than a bug?
If gdomap is already running, or is not run as root it will be unable to bind to the port.

On NetBSD (both v4 x86 and v2.0.2 sparc32) gdomap fails to start. The error I get is:

gdomap -f
Unable to bind address to UDP socket. Perhaps gdomap is already running
