Re: ACL for PGP [Virus checked (@MLP)] [Virus checked]


Really, if there are no write permissions the PGP client doesn't even bind to the server, so I can't see which objects he tries to search for.

If you trace the connections you should be able to find out, to which
objects the PGP clients wants to have which kind of access (search,
read, write, ..)
This information should be sufficient to build more restrictive ACLs
than you have now.
