Am mucking about trying to setup staff forums with only Admins able to view one forum. Have ticked private node and individually given two Admins all permissions. However when I can to forum view neither Admin can see the forum.

And yes have tried inherit and allow on the member group.

Works fine for me.

Is the private forum under a category? If so then make sure they have access to the category as well.

Yeap Have a category "Staff Forums" with "Admins" under that, all set up I think correctly. Will have another check, but at the moment not seeing the cat or the forum :(

What worked for me was setting all usergroup permissions to "inherit", which I think they are by default, selecting the private option, and going specifically to grant user in the upper right, and selecting "allow" for all components I wanted them to have. Otherwise, it didn't work as I anticipated.

Private nodes simply reset everyone's view permissions for that node, so you just need to allow "can view node" for the users/groups you want to give access.

Thanks Mike, this had been baffling me somewhat, but I've got it now. I have managed to create a staff forum node with what seem to be the right permissions.

I think for us vB types it's a matter of forgetting the vB way of doing things because it throws you somewhat if you don't.
