I have set up non-blocking sockets in the past, this code snippet is
for a UDP socket, but I believe it will work with TCP sockets as well
status == fcntl( udp_fd(passthru->socket), F_SETFL, O_NONBLOCK);
if ( status == 0 )
wakeup.sw_pfn = network_receive_callback;
wakeup.sw_arg = (caddr_t ) passthru->task_id;
status = setsockopt( udp_fd(passthru->socket), SOL_SOCKET,
SO_RCVWAKEUP, &wakeup, sizeof(wakeup));
if ( status != 0 )
syslog(LOG_ERR, "Error Installing call backs\n");
