Description Vadym Chepkov 2009-01-14 17:42:27 EST
I have SquirrelMail installed and this is a webmail interfaces. It doesn't work with standard selinux configuration, because in order to work it needs to connect to imap and smtp port ports for mail receiving/sending.

It can be bypassed by setting httpd_can_network_connect --> on, but I think it's too permissive. 

I added these rules to my local policy:

allow httpd_t pop_port_t:tcp_socket name_connect;
allow httpd_t smtp_port_t:tcp_socket name_connect;

Does it work if you set

Comment 2 Vadym Chepkov 2009-01-15 10:38:41 EST
It does, my bad.

In my defense, httpd_selinux(8) description of this boolean mentions only sendmail invocation and in this case httpd doesn't actually call sendmail.

Thank you.

No problem, we are having a doc writer review all of the services documentation so things like this hopefully will become clearer.
