1. localhost can be any machine in the world just as much as www.slashdot.org can be any machine in the world. You need to read up on name resolution
a bit.
2. I don't see how internal backup/restore permissions of Amanda are any part of this discussion.

audit2allow has a man page. Actually all the selinux command line utilities have man pages. Google search on "selinux howto" returns a number of
useful and comprehensive documents. I guess you are just lazy and it is easier to bash selinux then to read a couple of web pages, in that vein you
are probably running everything as root on your Linux and never install firewalls or anti viruses on windows. After all if it is not there you cannot
be bothered to look for it. Well, I guess you will see the light after the first successful break-in to your system.
