Description Robbie Harwood 2014-09-09 18:38:55 UTC
Description of problem:
I believe this was related to use of virt-manager, but I did not observe the actions the program took while it occurred.
SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/vpnc from 'read' accesses on the chr_file /dev/net/tun.

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

If you believe that vpnc should be allowed read access on the tun chr_file by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep vpnc /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
