When a user connects to a server with multiple indices, FoxTrot 2.5b7
also attempts a connection on the indices for which the user has no
access rights. This should fail, and the index should appear in gray in
the list of search sources. The user can't search on that index.

Is this correct? Or are you telling that the user can connect and search
an index for which he does not have access rights? In this case, this
user probably has admin privileges ("allow to administrate FoxTrot
Server" is checked for this user in the "sharing" pane of the server).
Admin users can administrate a server, and they can also connect to any
index, even when the index is not shared or the user has not explicit
access rights for it.

In the final version, indices for which a user has no access rights will
not be visible at all to this user.

If the index for which your user has access rights, contains references
to files for which this user has no access through file sharing or
Finder permissions, then there is a security issue: the user will see
these files in the search result. You should not include in an index
some files for which some users of the index should not have access.

We plan to try to enhance file sharing integration in a future version.
