You know, I thought so too! When I was trying Linux a while back I could. For 
some reason though, I can't with FreeBSD. Tried CuteFTP and Simple Telnet. 
Nothing.

I tried this, got an error:
SIOCSIFMEDIA: Device not configured
then I noticed that my card is set:
media: autoselect (10baseT/UTP <half-duplex>)
I think those other settings are just options on the card, but it is actually 
set half-duplex.
