Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 170890
NetworkManager-vpnc and SELinux problem returns
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:15 EST
Description of problem:
Same symptoms as bug 163405. Using setenforce 0 allows the VPN connection to
continue without /var/log/messages error (see below).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Oct 14 22:58:02 localhost NetworkManager: <WARNING> (): VPN failed for
service 'org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.vpnc', signal 'ConnectFailed', with
message 'The VPN login failed because the VPN program could not connect to the
VPN connection (which happens with 'setenforce 0').
I failed to mention a key piece of info:
Supposedly this problem was fixed with version 1.25.3-11 of that package. Not
sure if that means the bug is there or in NM.
Still experiencing this bug. Also note that the bug persists with SELinux
running in passive mode, though not with it disabled. Also, the symptoms do not
occur when running the NetworkManager daemon in CLI with --no-daemon.
Are you seeing any AVC messages in /var/log/audit/audit.log? or /var/log/messages?
This is not an SELinux problem at this point.
This was fixed long ago.
