For the benefit of others, under Fedora I edit /etc/sysconfig/selinux  
to turn this off.

Please recognize the risks you may be adding to your network by  
disabling selinux.  For some people, this is an acceptable situation  
(me for one), but in other environments this could be a bad thing.

I think it is often advisable to try temporarily selinux and/or  
iptables in an environment where things aren't working properly.  This  
can be done for a short period of time, so the risk of compromise is  
lessened.  Knowing that one of these two products is behind your  
troubles is well worth the risk, in my opinion.

I have spent considerable time on a new Fedora 11 install tweaking iptables.
