I am using Ploneldap to authenticate against our Novell eDirectory but am
having a few problems. 

• I can search users and groups in ZMI and Plone OK 
• I cannot see members of ldap groups through Plone 
• On sharing tab of Staff folder I have ldap group plonestaff* who Can view 
• Student Folder has no ldap groups who are allowed entry, only Logged-in
users which has no  permission checks in boxes 
• An ldap user in plonestaff* group can get into staff and student areas 

Plonestaff* Is staff usergroup on Novell eDirectory 
Ldap group Plonestaff does have Plone Member role. 

I have included a screengrab of how my ldap pugin is arranged. 

The site is using Intranet/Extranet Workflow. 
LDAPMultiPlugins v1.5 
LDAPUserFolder v2.8 
PloneLDAP v1 
Plone 3.2.2 
Zope Version  (Zope 2.10.7-final, python 2.4.4, win32) 
Python Version 2.4.4 (#71, Oct 18 2006, 08:34:43) [MSC v.1310 32 bit
System Platform win32 
SOFTWARE_HOME C:\Plone\zope2\lib\python 
ZOPE_HOME C:\Plone\zope2 
INSTANCE_HOME C:\Plone\parts\instance 
CLIENT_HOME C:\Plone\var\instance 
Network Services ZServer.HTTPServer.zhttp_server (Port: 8080) 
IIS6/Enfold Proxy 

Would anybody have any pointers as to how I can restrict my ldap users
folder views? 

Many Thanks.
