Instead of fully disabling SeLinux, another possibility is to put 
Selinux into permissive mode . You can do that by two ways.

1. "setenforce 0"   or
2. or changing the configuration file /etc/selinux/config and   put 

This way you can still get some warnings through SeLinux, and pluto can 
get started too.
Even I am not familiar much with SeLinux, but its just a suggestion.
