did you set him to be the moderator of the mod forum? In phpbb2, there aren't global mods like there were in phpBB1. This means that the system treats a user as a moderator only if the user specifically is assigned as a moderator of a forum.

Correct. If you have the forum permissions set to Mod, then the user must be the moderator of the forum to gain access. The better solution is to make it private and then give the user access if you don't want him/her to be a mod of that forum.

When you set it to private, I believe no one can access it until he/she is given permission, which is done in user admin-permissions..select the user and then a list of forums comes up which allows you to grant him/her access to a private forum, or moderator of a forum.
