Description Carlos Natividade 2013-07-08 11:36:27 UTC
Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/python2.7 from 'name_connect' accesses on the tcp_socket .

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

If você acredita que o python2.7 deva ser permitido acesso de name_connect em  tcp_socket  por default.
Then você precisa reportar este como um erro.
Você pode gerar um módulo de política local para permitir este acesso.
permitir este acesso agora executando:
# grep smoltSendProfil /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
