:SELinux is preventing /usr/lib64/xulrunner-2/plugin-container from 'name_connect' accesses on the tcp_socket .
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. 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

Comment 1 Miroslav Grepl 2012-06-07 09:22:11 EDT
Do you know what you were doing when this happened?
Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2012-06-07 11:54:28 EDT
I would figure this is some kind of irc chat application and I think we should allow this access.

Fixed in selinux-policy-3.10.0-129.fc17

Just watching a live stream on Ustream.tv
Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2012-06-07 14:58:08 EDT
Strange that it would connect to that port.  Did your video work fine?

It puzzled me, the Video stream worked fine but the chat never, it just sat there "connecting"
Comment 6 Daniel Walsh 2012-06-07 15:11:12 EDT
Ok so we need to allow chat.

You can allow this for now using 

# grep ircd /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mymozilla
# semodule -i mymozilla.pp

OK thanks.. I'll test with selinux-policy-3.10.0-129.fc17 when it appears.
Comment 8 Colin J Thomson 2012-06-08 12:15:53 EDT
I just updated to selinux-policy-3.10.0-129.fc17, the warnings have gone and Ustream chat now works. Thanks..
