Description Colin Walters 2005-06-20 13:51:38 EDT
Description of problem:

It took me quite a while to figure out a policy denial was breaking our web
application; looks like httpd_t httpd_cache_port_t:tcp_socket { name_connect }
is dontaudited.

That seems like a bad idea to me; why is this dontaudited?
Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2005-06-20 13:55:46 EDT
Why would httpd needt to connect to httpd_cache_port_t?


Comment 2 Colin Walters 2005-06-20 14:39:03 EDT
Port 8080 (labeled with httpd_cache_port_t) is a port very commonly used by
Tomcat installations; mod_jk connects Apache to Tomcat.
