Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/libexec/totem-plugin-viewer from 'name_connect' accesses on the tcp_socket .

*****  Plugin connect_ports (52.5 confidence) suggests  **********************

If you want to allow /usr/libexec/totem-plugin-viewer to connect to network port 182
Then you need to modify the port type.
# semanage port -a -t PORT_TYPE -p tcp 182
    where PORT_TYPE is one of the following: aol_port_t, asterisk_port_t, certmaster_port_t, cluster_port_t, commplex_port_t, couchdb_port_t, cyphesis_port_t, dns_port_t, ephemeral_port_t, flash_port_t, ftp_port_t, gatekeeper_port_t, hadoop_datanode_port_t, hplip_port_t, http_cache_port_t, http_port_t, ipp_port_t, ipsecnat_port_t, ircd_port_t, jabber_client_port_t, jboss_management_port_t, kerberos_port_t, keystone_port_t, matahari_port_t, mmcc_port_t, monopd_port_t, msnp_port_t, ocsp_port_t, port_t, postgrey_port_t, pulseaudio_port_t, soundd_port_t, speech_port_t, squid_port_t, streaming_port_t, tor_socks_port_t, transproxy_port_t, unreserved_port_t, virt_migration_port_t, vnc_port_t.

*****  Plugin mozplugger (39.5 confidence) suggests  *************************

If you want to use the plugin package
Then you must turn off SELinux controls on the Firefox plugins.
# setsebool unconfined_mozilla_plugin_transition 0

*****  Plugin catchall_boolean (4.66 confidence) suggests  *******************

If you want to allow mozilla plugin domain to connect to the network using TCP.
Then you must tell SELinux about this by enabling the 'mozilla_plugin_can_network_connect' boolean.
You can read 'mozilla_selinux' man page for more details.
setsebool -P mozilla_plugin_can_network_connect 1

*****  Plugin catchall_boolean (4.66 confidence) suggests  *******************

If you want to allow system to run with NIS
Then you must tell SELinux about this by enabling the 'nis_enabled' boolean.
You can read 'mozilla_selinux' man page for more details.
setsebool -P nis_enabled 1

*****  Plugin catchall (1.02 confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that totem-plugin-viewer 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 source:src /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

You can allow it using

# setsebool -P  mozilla_plugin_can_network_connect 1
