How to use raw sockets on Secure Linux

Raw-sockets are only designed to work in the syshi compartment. This is because there are inherent dangers with applications using raw-sockets. Some of these dangers are that raw-sockets bypass the ip stack and write directly to the network layer. Thus an application would be able to write its own network packets and could impersonate another machine.

If what You write is the case You should modify the manualpages for the method of tlrules.
