you need to use your LDAP-authenticator _instead_ of the PrincipalFolder you have to make an utility which implements IAuthenticatorPlugin and accepts a "login" and a "password"... with those you look in your LDAP, and if they match you create and return a PrinicipalInfo object... so you dont need a PrincipalFolder at all I think I read somewhere that someone already did a LDAP-authenticator..so you might want to do some more searching before you go on and write your own. cheers. luis _______________________________________________ Zope3-users mailing list Zope3firstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope3-users
