Description eric@christensenplace.us 2011-09-23 17:58:14 UTC
SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/asterisk from 'name_connect' accesses on the tcp_socket port 5222.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that asterisk should be allowed name_connect access on the port 5222 tcp_socket by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep asterisk /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 eric@christensenplace.us 2011-09-23 18:03:31 UTC
This is because Asterisk now acts as a jabber client.
