Description Martin C. Messer 2005-10-15 03:09:10 UTC
Description of problem:

Same symptoms as bug 163405. Using setenforce 0 allows the VPN connection to
continue without /var/log/messages error (see below).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Actual results:

Oct 14 22:58:02 localhost NetworkManager: <WARNING>       (): VPN failed for
service 'org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.vpnc', signal 'ConnectFailed', with
message 'The VPN login failed because the VPN program could not connect to the
VPN server.'.

Expected results:

VPN connection (which happens with 'setenforce 0').

I failed to mention a key piece of info:


Supposedly this problem was fixed with version 1.25.3-11 of that package. Not
sure if that means the bug is there or in NM.

Comment 2 Misha Kononov 2006-02-20 19:09:04 UTC
Still experiencing this bug. Also note that the bug persists with SELinux
running in passive mode, though not with it disabled. Also, the symptoms do not
occur when running the NetworkManager daemon in CLI with --no-daemon. 

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2006-03-04 15:31:09 UTC
Are you seeing any AVC messages in /var/log/audit/audit.log? or /var/log/messages?

Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2006-03-08 16:55:07 UTC
This is not an SELinux problem at this point.

Comment 5 Denis Leroy 2006-09-28 23:36:35 UTC
Taking ownership.

Comment 6 Warren Togami 2007-10-05 17:54:19 UTC
This was fixed long ago.
