Hi all,

It's the first time I write to this list, I'm absolutely not a SELinux 
expert, so I apologize if my question is poor (and for my english).

I'm running a server with FC3 (fully updated).
I wrote php scripts which connect to a MS-SQL Server 2k with FreeTDS (I 
installed the binary downloaded from
They worked right.
This morning (after a reboot of the Linux server), the scripts can no 
longer connect to the sql server; in /var/log/messages appear these avc 
lines when I try to connect:

kernel: audit(1119598362.919:0): avc:  denied  { connect } for  pid=3571 
exe=/usr/sbin/httpd scontext=user_u:system_r:httpd_t 
tcontext=user_u:system_r:httpd_t tclass=tcp_socket

Can anybody help me understand where is the problem?

Thank You very much
