Look at the example configuration for the eDirectory user-IP helper it
uses src-IP as "username" being looked up.

Wrapping is currently broken in that doc, I've fixed that below for clarity:

  external_acl_type IPUser %SRC /usr/sbin/ext_edirectory_userip_acl

  acl edirectory_users_allowed external IPUser \

  acl edirectory_users_denied external IPUser \

  http_access deny edirectory_users_denied
  http_access allow edirectory_users_allowed
  http_access deny all

The above config passes the LDAP path details as %DATA, so the helper
gets told to always use the src-IP as the "username" and each acl line
tells it which LDAP path/directory to check for that particular ACL
test. Allowing multiple tables for different whitelist or blacklist
checks by the same helper.

You may be able to use the above helper as-is, or use the existing AD
LDAP group helpers with %SRC in a similar way. Though the older AD
helpers probably need to use %g macro in the -f filter to specify where
the %DATA portion is to go.

Disclaimer: I have not tried this myself, so YMMV.
