Add the following radius attribute to each user's radius settings (the
number is the session duration measured in seconds):
  Ascend-Maximum-Time = 28800
for 8 hour session limit.

Subject: [RadiusNT] session time outs

Sorry about the way this is coming across, my computer decided to reboot
itself while I was writing a response to an email sent by someone on this
message board, and I lost everything in my inbox.

Some one on this board asked what my provider is using. My provider is
using a Lucent TNT NAS

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.)
