No, but if I remember correctly FreeBSD also has a setting for max
sockets per process, not only FD's (this could be another BSD though).
Also, depending on the application the maximum number of processes (+P)
can affect the situation.
$ sysctl -a | grep max might give hints :)
I've had over 20000 connections without problems using FreeBSD.
