The client allows up to "45 days old" data to be entered into the
database. You probably
entered someone with a startdate of several weekes ago, in which case
the client
thinks you were using it for more than 45 days. You can either
re-create the
database, or contact and they an send you a temp
key to
finish testing Emerald.

> 2. I setup a PPP user with 1$/hr 2$/hr charge type. I tested the user logging in the Telebit for a couple of hours. When I tried to invoice him he was charged 0$ for service and 0$ for connections. In call history was 2 Hrs and nothing on charge column. I execute from Batch menu the Charge option and after that Invoice.

You would have had to change the rate of the PPP acount type or create
account type with the rate. Did you change the rate of the user? It
sounds like
it was still on the 120 rate, and thats why a charge wasn't created.

You can't. What do you want to change?

Currently time is tracked in hous for billing.

RadiusNT already does this. It uses the lesser of an Existing
Session-Timeout for the
user/account type or the number of minutes they have left.
