That plugin only checks whether Everyone is in the Pre-Windows 2000
Compatible Access group. If you've tightened up access on your directory
by removing that, then you'll need to bind to the directory with the
proper credentials and issue your query.

Since the plugins aren't clear about how they construct the packets they
send, you'll either need to study the RFCs for LDAP or trace network
traffic as you issue the query using another tool to learn what your
plugin must send.
