Description David Highley 2005-10-29 22:58:00 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
With the static ports defined in /etc/hp/hplip.conf printing works but the scanner still will not work with SELINUX=enforcing. I would provide more information but have not been able to find anything logged.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
hplip 0.9.6

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Applications->Accessories->HP Device Manager

Actual Results:  Get pop up dialog box with this error:
Failed to open device 'hpaio:/net/Officejet_7300_serise?ip='
Error during device I/O.

Should have added the following information:

Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2005-10-31 15:32:53 UTC
Are you seeing avc messages in /var/log/messages or /var/log/audit/audit.log?

Comment 3 David Highley 2005-10-31 18:30:43 UTC
No, I did not see any avc messages in /var/log/messages. I looked around all the
other files in the /var/log directory and could not find anything logged.

I did run these tests:
SANE_DEBUG_DLL=128 scanimage -L and it completed without finding any issues. But
running scanimage: 
scanimage: open of device hpaio:/net/Officejet_7300_series?ip= failed:
Error during device I/O

Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2005-10-31 19:17:36 UTC
Does this work when you 
setenforce 0

Comment 5 David Highley 2005-11-01 04:39:37 UTC
Since I'm now running in permissive mode I did a setenforce 1. Then ran
scanimage and it failed. Then did a setenforce 0. Re-ran scanimage and it works.
So I checked the /var/log/messages file and found:
Oct 31 20:33:26 douglas dbus: avc:  received setenforce notice (enforcing=1)
Oct 31 20:33:26 douglas dbus: avc:  received setenforce notice (enforcing=1)

Comment 6 Daniel Walsh 2005-11-03 14:24:08 UTC
Ok, can you install policy sources

yum -y install selinux-policy-targeted-sources
cd /etc/selinux/targeted/src/policy
make enableaudit; make load
setenforce 0
Try to scan.
See if you have anything in /var/log/messages or /var/log/audit/audit.log

When you are done testing you can do a 

make clean; make load

Comment 7 David Highley 2005-11-05 04:53:42 UTC
yum -y install selinux-policy-targeted-sources
cd /etc/selinux/targeted/src/policy
make enableaudit; make load
setenforce 1
scanimage - which failed
See if you have anything in /var/log/messages or /var/log/audit/audit.log

Comment 8 Daniel Walsh 2005-11-07 15:36:29 UTC
What is port 9290?  Is this a standard port or is this a port set by the user?  


Comment 9 Daniel Walsh 2005-11-07 15:41:35 UTC
Looking at the code I see the following

./io/hpiod/jetdirect.cpp:static const int ScanPort0[] = { 0, 9290, 9291, 9292 };

So I will add these three ports.

If you add the following lines to 

portcon tcp 9290 system_u:object_r:hplip_port_t
portcon tcp 9291 system_u:object_r:hplip_port_t
portcon tcp 9292 system_u:object_r:hplip_port_t

Then do a mail load, it should allow the scanning to continue.

Comment 10 John Thacker 2006-05-05 14:21:51 UTC
Closing due to lack of response.
Looks like this was probably added, according to the last comment.
