I can only be of so much help compared to many of the others on this
list but I'll give it a shot as I am posting as it.

Tor only operates in TCP, you don't need to set yourself up UDP.

It probably shouldn't be listening on 0.0.0.0. localhost:9001 or
127.0.0.1:9001 are normal unless OS X is different from Windows &
Linux (sorry, not real familiar with Macs).
Changing that may be enough. It would mean editing your torrc file so
the ORListenAddress line is something like
Also, your ORPort line (default: ORPort 9001) must match the above
lines. E.g., if
Hopefully this helps. If not, it is possible your port forwarding is
setup incorrectly. If your computer gets a different IP from your
router every so often it can cause problems (depending on the router).
I have found it is easier to make sure my Tor server has a static IP
*inside* my network. E.g., my Tor server always has the address
192.168.1.xxx. This is is easy to configure with most routers. If you
need to configure it this way and have not I or someone else on this
list ought to be able to help you.
Other questions for you to answer:
1) Whatever version or Tor/Vidalia are you running?
2) What router do you use?
