Description Robin R. Price II 2010-07-12 20:53:30 UTC
Description of problem:

The iptables section didn't have anything in there.  
I do think it would be nice to mention that iptables can make use of the '-j SECMARK' feature which allows SELinux contexts to be applied to packets.  This is not in RHEL5 but looking for the RFE to be completed.

I did not see it in the RHEL6 SELinux documentation either.

RFE for RHEL5.4 https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=535074

Daniel Walsh<dwalsh@redhat.com>  should be able to help here or Eric Paris
<eparis@redhat.com>  for information on how to better use this and explain it.  They have been great to work with on SELinux related topics.
