WEP support

You have a policy problem by the looks of this part...

"Error: 'An SELinux policy prevents this sender from sending
this message to this recipient (rejected message had interface
"com.redhat.named" member "GetForwarders" error name "(unset)"
destination "com.redhat.named")'."

Since I am not familiar with the NSA's flavor linux (something about a
government distro wierds me out), I cannot tell you how to fix it.
But at least now you have a starting point.
