How to allow Samba server from Selinux firewall in CentOS


Hello,

I'm using CentOS 5.3, and I want to allow my samba server from selinux. I disabled my selinux and it works fine, but I want to keep my seline firewall on and want to allow other workstation to access my samba server.


Does any buddy have idea ?

I am not really sure what you are asking. Samba runs on 139 and 445 if you are asking for the ports to allow?

No, I am trying to say how to allow samba from SElinux, because when I disable SElinux I can share my data on the network. But for some reason when I enable SELinux, I can't access to my share folder. So what I want to do is to allow Samba from SElinux,so I don't have to turn off SElinux.

rahilmaknojia,
I think the confusion here is what you are describing. I think I understand you. Correct me if I am wrong.

You have a network of machines with Samba shares. 1 of those machines is SELINUX. Everything works fine as long as SELINUX is turned off. However if that machine is on, none of your samba shares work.

Am I correct?

semanage fcontext -l |grep samba
getsebool -a | grep samba

Eg to enable logons to home dirs

setsebool -P samba_enable_home_dirs on
