Hi, with the latest LdapContrib version 2.99.7 for TWiki 4.2.3, I can no longer restrict access to webs based on TWiki groups (we don't use AD groups, only the TWiki ones). The Users who are part of the groups cann still access a configured web:



The group TstGrp contains only one User (in this case mine, comming from the active directory "StefanNicolin"). With the settings posted above I can still see and access the configured web.

Another indication for an error is a broken display of the group list. TWikiGroups sections shows the first group "TWikiAdminGroup" and the string ARRAY(0x88adc18)
Please see the attached screenshot. Allright, I can't attach anything for whatever reason... Here is the link to the screenshot:


This seems to be a known issue with TWiki 4.2.3 and LdapContrib. See: http://foswiki.org/Tasks/Item778
