Description Eric Harney 2007-07-27 12:31:46 EDT
Description of problem:
Vino needs to be able to bind the vnc port for Gnome's remote desktop features.

    SELinux is preventing /usr/libexec/vino-server (user_t) "name_bind" to
    <Unknown> (vnc_port_t).

Detailed Description
    SELinux denied access requested by /usr/libexec/vino-server. It is not
    expected that this access is required by /usr/libexec/vino-server and this
    access may signal an intrusion attempt. It is also possible that the
    specific version or configuration of the application is causing it to
    require additional access.

Allowing Access
    You can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see
    http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385 Or you can disable
    SELinux protection altogether. Disabling SELinux protection is not
    recommended. Please file a http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi
    against this package.

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2007-07-27 12:43:15 EDT
Are you running strict policy in permissive mode?
Comment 2 Eric Harney 2007-07-27 13:33:04 EDT
Yes I am... does it behave differently in permissive and enforcing?
Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2007-08-14 08:22:17 EDT
Does setting on user_tcp_server fix your problem?

setsebool -P user_tcp_server=1
