I try to make cgiirc working on my system. Apache works fine and selinux
Allow HTTPD scripts to connect to the network is enable. So i can cgiirc
to connect to an irc server. I can see what is said on the channel but i
can't make any action. If i disable selinux all works fine. If i enable
selinux i have this in /var/log/audit/audit.log : 
type=AVC msg=audit(1124298167.251:3778508): avc:  denied  { read } for

But it's very difficult to understand where is the problem.
Someone could help me?
