I'm looking for a zope product that enables me to use our Active

I want users still stored in Zope, and access to directories should be
also something I can handle in Zope, and I don't want to use LDAP
because I don't control the LDAP server and there are no groups on the
LDAP server I can use.
So really, all I want is that Zope checks the passwords with the LDAP
server instead of with it's own userfolder.
And perhaps, a possibility to check/search for the available
on the LDAP server when adding a user to the userfolder.
I've checked out LDAPUserFolder but that's not what I'm looking for (I
I'd say "start coding". There is nothing that fits your (somewhat
strange) requirements. I would suggest you modify those requirements
to come up with a saner plan. Could it be you're thinking too much in
terms of specific implementation and too little in terms of what the
underlying goals are?
First of all, what do you gain from "storing users in Zope"? Is your
real goal to make sure only a subset of users from LDAP can access
your site? That goal is easily fulfilled by configuring the
LDAPUserFolder to store role information on the user folder and
disregard the LDAP server. Then you just secure your site by
requiring a certain role and only give that role to the subset of
users you want to let in.
