If I understand this correctly, the poster wants to automatically log people
out either at a specified time, or after a certain period of time.

For logging people out after a period of time, why not just set the
Session-Timeout during the authorization phase.

For periodically going through the ServerPorts table and logging people out
based on specific criteria (including a particular time of day), you can
easily use Perl for this. Get the SNMP and DBI modules, then write your
script to loop through the table and send an SNMP disconnect request to your
NAS where necessary. Shouldn't be that difficult to implement.
