:SELinux is preventing /usr/lib64/xulrunner-2/plugin-container from 'name_connect' accesses on the tcp_socket .
:*****  Plugin connect_ports (92.2 confidence) suggests  **********************
:If you want to allow /usr/lib64/xulrunner-2/plugin-container to connect to network port 190
:Then you need to modify the port type.
:# semanage port -a -t PORT_TYPE -p tcp 190
:    where PORT_TYPE is one of the following: mmcc_port_t, ipp_port_t, streaming_port_t, port_t, ephemeral_port_type, ftp_port_t, dns_port_t, speech_port_t, http_cache_port_t, http_port_t, squid_port_t, pulseaudio_port_t, flash_port_t, unreserved_port_t, dns_port_t, kerberos_port_t, ocsp_port_t.
:*****  Plugin catchall_boolean (7.83 confidence) suggests  *******************
:If you want to allow system to run with NIS
:Then you must tell SELinux about this by enabling the 'allow_ypbind'boolean.
:setsebool -P allow_ypbind 1
:*****  Plugin catchall (1.41 confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that plugin-container should be allowed name_connect access on the  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 plugin-containe /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp

:I really have no idea about what 'plugin-container' should and should not do. I've therefore reported the bug so you folks can make the decision. 
Comment 1 Miroslav Grepl 2012-04-22 16:12:40 EDT
Do you know what you were doing when this happened?
Comment 2 Ankur Sinha (FranciscoD) 2012-04-23 00:22:21 EDT
I can't be certain: I was working on something so I had my notifications turned off. The only thing I remember doing out of the ordinary was use https://facebook.com instead of http://facebook.com. It could be that, but unfortunately, I cannot be a 100% certain :/
Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2012-04-23 10:27:18 EDT
I can not find anything on the internet about port 190.  This is strange, if it happens again
Comment 4 Ankur Sinha (FranciscoD) 2012-04-23 12:34:38 EDT
I think we can close this one since I haven't enough info to help you folks? If it happens again, I'll note exactly what caused it and you can take a look at it?
Comment 5 Robert Hancock 2012-08-13 21:02:35 EDT
Going to http://chatroulette.com/ produces a similar error about connection to port 81 being blocked. I am not sure how much value there is in restricting the ports that Flash is connecting to, as it's hard to predict what ports will be used.
Comment 6 Daniel Walsh 2012-08-14 10:59:59 EDT
You might be right, although I would like to prevent it from sending to mail ports.
