That's SELinux.  Note that the name SELinux doesn't appear in SELinux error
messages; this may be the Security Mindset at work.  The key words in the
error message are "enforcing mode" and "policy".  Turn off SELinux'
enforcing mode.  If you run any servers you will want to be behind some
other firewall and pay attention to the machine's firewall.
