Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/polipo from 'name_connect' accesses on the tcp_socket port 35651.

*****  Plugin catchall_boolean (89.3 confidence) suggests   ******************

If you want to allow system to run with NIS
Then you must tell SELinux about this by enabling the 'nis_enabled' boolean.
You can read 'None' man page for more details.
setsebool -P nis_enabled 1

*****  Plugin catchall (11.6 confidence) suggests   **************************

If you believe that polipo should be allowed name_connect access on the port 35651 tcp_socket 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 polipo /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
