Rules Manager Puzzle

I want to restrict access to a page.
I want only logged users whose session values are as follows

NID' = 1
TID' = 2

To access the page.

So my rationale is to setup The Access Rules wizard thus

Allow if TID' = 2
Allow if NID' = 1

This translates in the helpergroupsrules.php file as this extract;

case "SellerAccount":

            $comparisons[0] = array(TRUE, "".((isset($_SESSION['TID']))?$_SESSION['TID']:"")  ."", 1, "2");
            $comparisons[1] = array(TRUE, "".((isset($_SESSION['NID']))?$_SESSION['NID']:"")  ."", 1, "1");

However, on execution Users with login session value 'TID' = 1 are able to access the page too. This not a desired action.

Any suggestion please?

try using this for the access rule instead:

Restrict if TID <> 2
Allow if NID = 1

The conditions are read line by line till one passes. as soon as a condition passes the, it stops processing and considers the rule successful

read it like this:
Restrict if TID <> 2, if not
Allow if NID = 1

If the TID does not equal 2, if does not know what to do, Allow or restrict, so will continue to the next condition. If the NID is equal to 1, it will know what to do, in this case allow.
