You need to know what NAS the provider is using. Ascend/Lucent gear
ignores the standard Session-Timeout directive. They are looking for
Ascend-Maximum-Time. Incredibly annoying considering just about
everyone else's gear has compressed down to more reasonable VSAs.

My provider uses my radius file for authentication only, then my customers are actually running on my providers equipment and lines. When I asked about monitoring these 56k connections for time abuses, my provider told me that they monitor the lines and disconnect a user after 18 continuous hours. Evidently this is not the case as I was just informed that a particular customer has been on for 5 days. I am now informed that I would need to send additional information thru my authentication file that would set the time limit for each session. I have tried the session timeout line in the users file with no luck. Am I running to old a version or radius? Is there any other way to accomplish time limitations? Any examples would be great. (be kind, I am a novice.)
