Description Timo Denissen univentionstaff 2015-03-10 10:12:01 CET
The info text

"If this option is activated, the LDAP server does not allow anonymous access to the LDAP directory, i.e. LDAP searches are authenticated. If the variable is unset, anonymous access is allowed."

is misleading, as it suggests that the variable "ldap/acl/read/anonymous" must be set to "yes" to disable the anonymous access. However, the other way around is the case: "no" to disable anonymous read access, "yes" to allow it.

The info text should be updated.

Description[de]=Ist diese Option aktiviert, erlaubt der LDAP-Server [-keinen-]{+den+} anonymen Zugriff auf das LDAP-Verzeichnis[-, d.h. LDAP-Suchen müssen authentifiziert erfolgen.-]{+ ohne Authentifizierung.+} Ist die Variable nicht gesetzt, wird ein anonymer Zugriff [-erlaubt-]{+verboten+}.

Description[en]=If this option is activated, the LDAP server does[-not-] allow anonymous access to the LDAP directory[-, i.e. LDAP searches are authenticated.-]{+ without authentication.+} If the variable is unset, anonymous access is [-allowed-]{+denied+}.
