Description Daniel Demus 2013-05-29 19:05:18 EDT
Description of problem:
Trying to start a VPN tunnel. I assume L2TP IPsec VPN Manager 1.0.8 is trying to read the address of dbus.
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/L2tpIPsecVpn from 'search' accesses on the directory /root/.config.

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

If you believe that L2tpIPsecVpn should be allowed search access on the .config directory 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 L2tpIPsecVpn /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
