You need to know what kind of access servers are in use before you can
assign a maximum session duration. Ascend MAX devices (at least in the 4000
series) use "Ascend-Maximum-Time". Others may use "Session-Timeout". Both
are measured in seconds. If you need to, you can assign both. If an access
server doesn't recognize a particular attribute, it'll just ignore it.

Subject: [RadiusNT] radiusnt session limits

I am currently running radiusNT ver 2.5.125 in text mode. My T1 provider is
supplying me with modem pools for my 56k dialup customers. 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.)
