Description Berend De Schouwer 2015-10-09 06:00:24 EDT
Description of problem:

Configure a Fortigate SSL VPN.  Try to connect.  Eventually you'll get the following in the logs:
Oct 09 11:49:56 sieve-deschouwer-co-za NetworkManager[1242]: ERROR:  forkpty: Permission denied

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure Fortigate SSL VPN
2. Connect

Actual results:

Nothing happens.

Expected results:

One of
- vpn connects
- error dialog popup

Additional info:

I've reported selinux violations by this package as bug # 1270201
I no longer get any selinux AVC warnings

I assume there's a missing capability?  forkpty() is a normal call for pppd.

sorry for the bug getting no attention so far.

Does this issue still happen?
Comment 2 Berend De Schouwer 2016-11-01 23:27:25 EDT
This is working for me now in F24 + updates with selinux enforcing
Comment 3 Thomas Haller 2016-11-02 07:20:22 EDT
It's not clear from the original description what the issue there is.

But as it seems to no longer happen, closing. Let's reopen if it still happens and additional information can be provided.
