Re: Continued: Security question. (fwd)

Ok, so my acl would be something like

access to (whatever)
	by groupOfNames="cn=Administrators,dc=<domain>,dc=net" write
	by * none

Is this right or would I actually use something like this?
access to (whatever)
	by dnattr=groupOfNames/member
	by * none

I will probably try both before I get a response, but I would really like
to know which one is more correct if both work.... Thanks for all the
